While the Friday after Thanksgiving is, for most, dedicated to shopping, the following Saturday is devoted to shopping local.

Small Business Saturday was created to encourage consumers to support the businesses and people in their communities during the holiday season. We’re compiling a list of Metro Detroit businesses and Small Business Saturday events to help you get started.

Note: This list is not exhaustive. If you’d like us to include a business or event on this list, feel free to shoot us an email.
