(WSPA) – It’s a season when families make extra time to shop.
While big box stores will be swamped on Black Friday, locally-owned businesses will offer special deals this weekend as part of Small Business Saturday.
Dozens of shops and restaurants line Trade Street in Greer’s historic downtown.
Greer Station Association is doing a 10/10/10 gift bag giveaway as part of Small Business Saturday.
Organizers say 10 stores will each give a bag to the first 10 shoppers of the day.
One lucky customer at each store will find a $10 gift card in their bag.
The city of Simpsonville is also proclaiming Nov. 25 Small Business Saturday.
Shoppers can start their day at the city’s Welcome Center where they’ll receive a shopping tote bag and guides to the best deals between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. There will also be free visits with Santa Claus, according to Simpsonville leaders.
