Small Business Saturday weekend just happens to be next weekend—November 29-December 1!

Everyone agrees that Austin has one of the best running communities in the country. And small businesses are the lifeblood of communities. Well, you’re in luck, because Small Business Saturday weekend (otherwise known as Black Friday) just happens to be next weekend—November 29-December 1!

Small Business Saturday is traditionally celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and is so important for supporting our local Austin businesses. Shopping locally has multiple benefits for enriching our community: It’s great for the local economy and is often eco-friendly since there’s no transporting of distant goods via planes, trains or trucks. Small businesses create jobs and enhance local neighborhoods in many ways. They’re just plain people-friendly!

It’s a great weekend to get out and get in the holiday spirit and mingle with other folks who are enjoying the shopping buzz. What a great opportunity for shoppers to support our local small businesses (and the people who run them) that make Austin unique and at the same time, help to bring the community together.

So it makes sense to support your local businesses all weekend long by doing your sports and running gear shopping at Ready to Run on Shop Local Saturday. The fun starts on Black Friday (November 29), and to make it worth your while, check out these deals:
