The fifth annual Small Business Saturday event will be taking place on November 26 in Downtown Laramie from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. During this time, several downtown Laramie businesses will be offering deals on in store merchandise and some will offer warm drinks and treats to further entice shoppers.

A complete list of Small Business Saturday deals can be found by clicking this link.

The first Small Business Saturday took place in 2010 and was sponsored by American Express in an effort to encourage holiday shoppers to shop locally and keep money in the local economy. Though it started in a Massachusetts small town, Small Business Saturday has become an event that helps promote local businesses everywhere.

Shoppers that participate in the event are encouraged to post photos of their spoils with the hashtags #shopsmall and #shoplaramie.
