Small Business Saturday November 28 2015

Small Business Saturday, Halifax edition, is a day when local businesses encourage you to shop small. After the Black Friday shenanigans, we think Saturday should be about the social side of shopping.

Go out with your friends, think about what you're buying, have a coffee, or a glass of wine in between stops - whatever you like. It's not about running as fast as you can to the next stop - it's about enjoying your community - a community that includes a lot of small businesses that rely greatly on your patronage.

Shop at your favourite small businesses, here are a few that are offering special treats for you.
