Dauphin County—If the madness of Black Friday kept you away from the stores today then there`s another shopping option , Small Business Saturday. It was started two years ago by American Express to boost local economies.
" I think it`s the backbone of America and I think something has to be done to help small businesses dramatically," says Isaac Michkin Owner, The Plum
Toy`s on the Square in Hummelstown seeing business as usually on Friday. But they hope if last year was any indication, that small business Saturday will bring in the cash ,and draw attention to the effects small businesses have on the economy.
" A lot of people come in they haven`t been in here, shopping local and they want to support the local businesses so its helpful for us local people because we support the community and support the kids," says Grafton Stine, Owner, Toys on the Square
