Small businesses prepare for holiday shopping season

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WDTV)- With just a few weeks to go until Thanksgiving, many stores have already brought out their holiday items to kick-off the season.

Many small shops say they start prepping for the holidays months, or even a full year, in advance. While big-box stores steal the show on Black Friday, local businesses have the chance to shine on Small Business Saturday.

According to a survey from the National Federation of Independent Business, over 100 million people participated in the event last year.

Small Business Saturday is on November 25.
