It is called Small Business Saturday, but it serves as one of the biggest shopping days of the year. Yet, this year’s Small Business Saturday was interrupted by not one, but two blizzards. As a result, both Duluth and Superior have decided to host a second Small Business Saturday this Saturday, December 7th.

“The idea behind it is to get people out and shopping at our small businesses here—right here in our local area. We really like to promote ‘shop local’ at the Superior Chamber of Commerce so the idea is to get you into these businesses that you might not have been before that are right here in your back door,” Nikky Farmakes, Director of Marketing for the Superior Chamber of Commerce said.

Following Black Friday and preceding Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday has become a staple of one of the busiest shopping weeks of the year.

“It’s a way for our businesses to really celebrate local businesses and a way for people to really show their support. For us, typically, small business Saturday is one of the busiest shopping days for our businesses so to give them a bonus is really going to be beneficial,” Kristi Stokes, President of the Greater Downtown Council said.

Organizers hope that better weather will result in better shopping for customers and businesses alike. A full list of businesses that will participate in Duluth can be found here and a full list of businesses that will participate in Superior can be found here.
