Small Business Saturday Highlights Local Business

Friday, November 23, 2012
Owners George and Lou Forrest watch as Landen Gettings enjoys the trains at Roundhouse Hobbies in Piggott. The shop is located in the Piggott Diner building, and is a perfect example of the type of businesses highlighted on "Small Business Saturday."

Saturday, Nov. 24 was designated as "Small Business Saturday" for 2012. The day following what has become known as "Black Friday" for its history of putting retailers in the black for the year, is the day set aside to remember that small businesses made this country what it is today. The day is also set aside as a reminder to consumers to buy locally from small businesses whenever they can.
