Community Book Center on Bayou Road celebrates Small Business Saturday. (staylocal.org)

On Saturday — between Black Friday and Cyber Monday (make that Plaid Friday and Cider Monday) — local retailers and shoppers celebrate the low-key, hyper-local Small Business Saturday. It’s a national event bringing millions of Americans out to shop for holiday gifts at their favorite small businesses, to explore friendly, creative local shops and to support the local economy.

Small Business Saturday draws tourists and locals to come out in a show of support for the stretches of shops and restaurants throughout New Orleans’ neighborhoods. This year marks the 10th anniversary of this  tradition, and StayLocal New Orleans is marking it with all the news you need to know from shop owners and their fans.

Enjoy shopping along Oak Street, Magazine Street, Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, the French Quarter, Bayou Road, the CBD and other local business corridors with small shops.

Here are a few of the Uptown stores offering specials. Check StayLocal’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates.
