POTSDAM — Small Business Saturday is celebrated Thanksgiving weekend, this year on Nov. 26, across the country as a day of appreciation for small and locally owned businesses.

Small Business Saturday is not so much an event as a movement, according to Benjamin R. Dixon, executive director of the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce.
