Just because black Friday is nearly over, doesn't mean the holiday shopping has to end! This Saturday, local businesses welcomed customers to their shops to help them thrive.

That is part of the Small Business Saturday special.

Some will also have giveaways!

The small business development center has a giveaway going on to promote shopping local.

As Black Friday spotlights big box stores Saturday focused more on small businesses.

"Just trying to get people aware of the day, what it means, and to just come out and give our community that extra support today", Jennifer Andreas with the Cedarburg Chamber of Commerce said.

Those small businesses and others, like Lot 2029, all look forward to Small Business Saturday.

"I think it is really important because you wouldn't know about a lot of small businesses unless you came out to where we are all set up", Thompson said.

She started her business in 2009 and she still sews every bag and blanket by hand.

Most of the businesses on Market Street closed around 6 or 7 p.m., but others told WDRB they planned on staying open as long as the shoppers kept coming through the doors.
