Westchester residents shop local for Small Business SaturdayPosted: Updated:
Westchester residents are being encouraged to shop locally for Small Business Saturday.
There was a buy-one, get-one free sale at “History of New York” in White Plains – a clothing and sneaker boutique. The owner of store says he is counting on locals to come in and support his business.
"It's hard to compete with some of those big stores, but we do as much as we can and price match to really compete with their sales," says Arik.
Shoppers on Small Business Saturday say it’s important to support local shops because they are the backbone of the economy and employ a lot of people in the community.
