Black Friday ends, Small Business Saturday begins
11/23/2012 (Updated 10:48:23 PM)BINGHAMTON -- With Black Friday winding down and Cyber Monday still two days away, where are Southern Tier residents going to get their shopping fix?
Saturday is Small business Saturday. It's a day where communities encourage shopping local. Several local businesses in the area are offering special deals and they say it's important to "buy Binghamton."
"I think it's really important to support our community and support downtown and this is such a great store," said Olivia Latronica, Sales Associate at m.y.boutique. "It's just really important to come out and support these smaller shops."
"We know you, we know what you like, and we remember you and we stand behind what we do," said Sherry Eaton, Owner of the Garland Gallery.
Merry Harris, Binghamton's Director of Economic Development, says that if everyone spent $10 locally instead of at chains that could mean a $500,000 boost to the local economy.
