"It's been very nice. We opened up this morning, and at 10:00 a.m. we had our first customer and we've been busy ever since", said Owner of Southern Blush Boutique Carla Lagan. 

In 2010 american express started a nationwide advertising campaign called "Small Business Saturday hoping to encourage more shoppers to support their local businesses.

There's been lot of other local businesses doing deals and things too so it keeps it local", said Owner of Splurge Boutique, Kristen Partee. 

Many local retailers are now starting to join the "Small Business Saturday" bandwagon, hoping to bring more holiday shoppers to their stores. 

"We're going to extend it for tomorrow. We open at 9:00 a.m. in the morning , we will close at 5:30 p.m. We have some special season sales that we're starting today, our prices should be fairly reasonable."

"Yeah, come out and support your local businesses, and shop Big Spring. There's a lot going on and you don't have to make the truck all the way to Midland. Our prices are low and affordable and you can get some great quality items right here in town without having to go anywhere."
