AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -
After feasting on turkey and all the fixings, many CSRA residents headed out to big retailers for Gray Thursday and Black Friday deals.
But locally-owned stores are hoping to draw residents through their doors for Small Business Saturday.
On the day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country, one Augusta store is hoping to bring in customers with a special event.
Another local store, Stan Johnson Jewelers in North Augusta is using Small Business Saturday to kick off its Christmas shopping season. The store also is offering a special Small Business Saturday deal on its Facebook page.
America's 28 million small businesses create two out of every three new private sector jobs, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. Half of working Americans either own or work for a small business.
Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010, and is now celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
