Most of us have heard of Black Friday, but have you heard of Small Business Saturday? It's an awesome way to support local Bismarck businesses and save some money!

On Saturday, November 26th, the Downtowners Association is once again putting on Small Business Saturday in Downtown Bismarck. This is the 7th year Bismarck has recognized Small Business Saturday and it keeps on growing.

Roughly 40 local businesses in Downtown Bismarck will be taking part Saturday, November 26th by offering specials and sales. Their hope is to encourage shoppers to do some of their holiday shopping locally. American Express actually launched Small Business Saturday back in 2010.

You can rest up on Black Friday and make a day out of Small Business Saturday Downtown. Grab a coffee, lunch or treat and make your way from store to store for door busters and discounts!
