There's a lot of conversation today about online shopping and big stores jammed with customers for Black Friday specials.
But don't forget our small, local businesses. There are one of a kind businesses like the Beach House Greeting and Garden Essentia and there are bigger businesses that are still locally owned, such as Bartells, Thriftway, Central Market, Brown Bear.
Saturday is Small Business Saturday - a day when you are encouraged to seek out the one of a kind businesses in your own neighborhood or city.
If you need some suggestions, we have profiled a few in our Small Business section, which can be found on the front page under Features. It includes both services and retail.
