Support Your Favorite Small Business With a Patch Shout-Out

With Small Business Saturday happening today, you can help drive feet—and wallets—to your favorite independent business.

You might be the type who finds sleeping on a freezing sidewalk for the best Black Friday deals exciting.

Or perhaps you've already started working out your mouse-clicking finger for Cyber Monday.

But if neither scenario appeals to you, there is an alternative—Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday, conceived by American Express to help spotlight the efforts of local small businesses, comes at the beginning of the big holiday shopping sprint, this Saturday and encourages shoppers not to bypass Main Street for the mega-mall.

Naperville Patch would love to hear which small businesses you can't live without in Naperville.

Tell us in the comments which independently owned business is a must for shoppers this Saturday and why. Your shout-out could help a sector of our economy that has created 65 percent of the net new jobs over the last 17 years.

So when you must get your nails done just right, discover that perfect bottle of wine or have a craving for an amazing sandwich, where do you go time and time again?

B&R Sports in All Seasons Ice Arena is got to be the best place bar none for hockey equipment. Believe me, I have been to them all! The prices are reasonable and the manager Bryan is terrific. Very customer friendly, you can tell he loves what he does.

wow.....are you also somehow affiliated as, say, the OWNER of the business Leo? Ridiculous. All caps, and you use your own name to give a shout out to a business also using your name. Do you think people don't see that?!? How about paying for advertising rather than spamming?!?!?

I absolutely love Lillian's of Naperville. There are bags galore (all under. $50), unique items less than. $20 perfect for yourself, gifts , stocking stuffers! The ladies will find something for you and probably have you try on something you'd normally not choose, but you'll feel and LOOK fabulous and for a Very reasonable price! They love what they do & they love you! It shows! Shop there often as they get new inventory monthly!
