The kids have long been back to school, there’s a nip in the air and the holidays are right around the corner — which means holiday shopping will soon be on everyone’s mind. If you are a small business owner, it’s something you should give thought to as well. Now is the perfect time to kick off the season by preparing to participate in Small Business Saturday. It’s on November 29th this year, falling on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. In recent years it has become the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season.
