After the crowds have shopped at big stores and malls on Black Friday, small businesses are hoping Saturday will be their day. On "Small Business Saturday," thousands of stores, dry cleaners, spas and other establishments across the country will offer their own discounts and promotions to draw holiday shoppers. Small Business Saturday was created by American Express three years ago as a way to get more consumers to use its cards. Many small businesses do get a sales bump from the day â¿¿ but for some, it's part of a strategy for the whole holiday season. Perhaps more importantly, it's an opportunity to build a corps of customers who will keep coming back year-round. By Business Writer Joyce M. Rosenberg.

Some lament the embrace of materialism and the erosion of traditional community values. By Kelvin Chan.
