First there was Black Friday, and starting last year, the shopping day after Black Friday was named Small Business Saturday. Saturday is a day to support West Roxbury businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve the neighborhood.
Small Business Saturday was created last year in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: creating more demand for their products and services.
