Salisbury - Mayor Jake Day says, “Mark your calendar for Small Business Saturday on November 28th!” The City is once again encouraging citizens to shop local and support small businesses during the holiday season.

I'm sure Joe will inform us if other areas in the city plan such an event - If I read this correctly it says "Downtown" is offering big specials on Saturday 11/28. Am glad to see such an event advertised on here, as I actually thought Kuhn's Jewelers and Bars were all that was left downtown.
