On one of the nation's biggest shopping weekend's of the year with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, local businesses get the spotlight on Small Business Saturday.
This event has been going on for three years and it always happens right after Black Friday. American Express will give card holders a one-time $25 back if they spend $25 or more at a small business.
13WMAZ caught up with two small business in Macon, Amanda's Cakery and Ginger Michelle to talk about Small Business Saturday.
Amanda Meadows of Amanda's Cakery said that she loves coming to work everyday to make cakes and cupcakes. And while she appreciates the effort behind Small Business Saturday, she said she hopes that customers support local small businesses all the time.
"I think having a Small Business Saturday is helpful to kind of let people who want to support small businesses give back to them on that day, but we want it all year round," said Meadows.
Grace Anderson of Ginger Michelle said that she thinks what makes her store stand out is that she can offer consumers different clothes, than the quantity at department stores.
"Small businesses are kind of like what makes each town unique cause not everybody has a ginger michelle," said Anderson. "I definitely think it's good to support small businesses and keep them in business."
