MIDLAND, TX-It's been a weekend full of shopping, and today West Texans had the chance to support local businesses for Small Business Saturday.
This special day was created to help local businesses get more exposure during the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
CBS 7 spoke with one local business owner who says it's nice to remind the community to support small businesses like hers.
"My thought is if you don't shop small businesses, small stores like us and Barking Dog, and just other places, we wont be here if you don't support us. And we can bring specialized things that box stores don't have," said Courtney Allen, Owner of La Bebe Boutique in Midland.
Allen says by shopping small, your money stays local and helps create jobs.
According to the Small Business Saturday website, they have more than 100-million supporters who are now shopping locally.
