Small Business Saturday is a national shopping event (between Black Friday & Cyber Monday) that encourages consumers to shop local. On Saturday, November 27, millions of Americans across the country will set out to shop for holiday gifts at local businesses. This year is especially important for the Louisiana economy, as so many of our businesses have been impacted not only by Covid but also Hurricane Ida. See below for the OffBeat roundup of gift suggestions that encourage you shop at your (and our!) favorite, independent local businesses.
