Shop Locally in Poway on Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24

Start your holiday shopping at locally owned stores during Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.

American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Poway.

Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.

American Express has an online map with qualifying merchants, and you can also “like” Small Business Saturday on Facebook by visiting www.facebook.com/shopsmall.

Everyone has locally owned businesses in their community, and shopping on Small Business Saturday is the perfect way to give back to the businesses you know and love in your community.

I would like a list of small businesses in Poway where I can buy some non-food gifts for my family. Help! I know there is a great little dress shop and a stamp shop in Old Poway. I'm looking for decorative as well as functional housewares and electronic gadgetry, too. Possibly live pets, if there's a mom n pop pet shop here.

There used to be a small toy and hobby shop next to Dixieline. It's not there anymore, but I need to buy some toys, too.
