CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (WBOY) – After you’ve hit the big shops and gotten those bigger ticket items on your list, and before it’s time to pull out the laptop for Cyber Monday, remember to stock up on unique gifts and stocking fillers at the Small Business Saturday.
According to the Morgantown Area Partnership, if you spend $100 at a local business, $48 stays in the local economy, while if you spend $100 at a major online store like Amazon, only $1 remains local.
Here are some events and deals in northern West Virginia that 12 News was able to locate.
