Shop Locally in Westwood, Hillsdale, Washington Twp. on Small Business Saturday

Start your holiday shopping at locally owned stores during Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.

American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Westwood, Washington Township and Hillsdale.

Local business owners were hopeful that the day could lead to increased sales.

Pets Unlimited owner Susan Weinrich said that, historically, more people go to the malls than to downtown Westwood on Black Friday.

"Black Friday does not really affect the small town of Westwood," she said. "Small Business Saturday might make a difference.

Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
