Support Your Favorite Small Business With a Patch Shout-Out

With Small Business Saturday coming this weekend, you can help drive feet—and wallets—to your favorite independent business.

You might be the type who finds sleeping on a freezing sidewalk for the best Black Friday deals exciting. Or perhaps you've already started working out your mouse-clicking finger for Cyber Monday. But if neither scenario appeals to you, there is an alternative—Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday, conceived by American Express to help spotlight the efforts of local small businesses, comes at the beginning of the big holiday shopping sprint, this Saturday, Nov. 26, and encourages shoppers not to bypass Main Street for the mega-mall.

The benefits go beyond supporting local merchats. You can receive a one-time $25 statement credit when you register any eligible American Express® Card and use that card to make a purchase of $25 or more at a small business on Nov. 26.

North Branford Patch would love to hear which small businesses you can't live without in North Branford and Northford. Tell us in the comments which independently owned business is a must for shoppers this Saturday and why.

So when you must get your nails done just right, want to pick out just the right gift, discover that perfect bottle of wine or have a craving for an amazing sandwich, where do you go time and time again?
