The Saturday after Thanksgiving has been deemed Small Business Saturday. It urges people to shop local, small businesses. Since Black Friday is usually dominated by the big retailers, this is a way to help put dollars back into your community. You can check it out here and here.
I went to a couple of my favorite Small Businesses here in Burbank. One of them is Rocket Fizz. They are a soda pop and candy shop. Each location is independently owned and operated. I got a few Sprecher sodas for the Packer game the next day. (They lost but that's another story.)
It was getting late and I wanted to make sure I hit up the next business on my list. House of Secrets is an AWESOME comic book shop. I wanted to pick up the next issue of WonderWoman and also pick up some issues of Bat Girl I did not have yet.
