Local business gearing up for Small Business Saturday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday falls Small Business Saturday - a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country.

So once you're done at the mall, you can shop small.

We talked to Chrome, a local clothes and accessory store near 19th and Boston Avenue.

Employees say they're excited about the possibilities on Saturday.

Assistant Manager Amanda Kozimor said, "We're supporting our community. It allows us to have jobs, especially for us, we have jobs for Tech students so it helps them be able to support themselves during school. It's also a great way to help out our community to keep our economy growing..."

The campaign is sponsored by American Express, which is also offering card-holders money back for shopping at qualified stores on Saturday.
