Black Friday may be over, but the shopping frenzy does not stop, especially for the sales on Small Business Saturday.
Not only is that focused on retail but also restaurants and other types of businesses. Some depend on this day to be profitable for the year.
“Throughout the year we kind of do the rollercoaster ride. But, on Small Business Saturday, it’s obviously a huge financial spike that allows us to keep the resources and keep us going for the rest of the year,” said Mike Iken, Owner of Dakota Nuts-N-Candy.
Dakota Nuts-N-Candy is not the only one, just a few stores down at Fireflour Pizzeria & Coffee Bar, owners say they prepare in advance.
“We try to make sure we have about double of what we normally have. We prepare in advance pretty extensively,” said Taylor Abler, General Manager at Fireflour Pizzeria & Coffee Bar.
Overall, It’s a day to give back to small businesses and buy within the community.
According to the Downtowners Association over 40 small businesses in Bismarck participated with sales, and specials.
