LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — In a difficult year, small businesses are about to have a moment in the spotlight. Saturday is the 11th annual Small Business Saturday.

COVID-19 has hit small businesses hard with increased costs for safety and supplies, new rules for occupancy, and fewer customers shopping in stores. Many stores are struggling to survive.

According to a study done by American Express, 64% of business owners felt that this year, Small Business Saturday is more important than ever.

However, not everybody is in a position this year to shop for deals Thanksgiving weekend.

Here are 3 ways you can support local small businesses without spending a dime.

  1. Get social. Like and share their posts on Facebook and Instagram.
  2. Go to the source. We all love to order delivery straight from our smartphone, but those can actually charge fees. Try curbside pickup instead.
  3. Get active. Reach out to your local representatives and let them know how important COVID relief is to your favorite small business.
