Local businesses get spotlight for Small Business Saturday

Posted: Updated:

While some shoppers head to the big chain stores, others are choosing to shop at locally owned Mom and Pop stores for Small Business Saturday.

The store director at the Star Market in Five Points said people shouldn't shop locally just one day of the year, but daily.

He said the major benefits of shopping local is that the money goes right back into the community.

"Seventy-five percent of every dollar that you spend is going to stay in the community. It's going into your schools, your roads, into the community."

Star Market had been up and running in Huntsville since 1994.
