PINE BELT -

Some small business owners in the Pine Belt are thankful this holiday weekend, not only for their loyal customers, but also for a day set aside to celebrate their contributions to the economy.  

Nov. 28 was Small Business Saturday and folks were encouraged to "shop small" by making purchases at locally-owned establishments.

Two family-owned businesses in particular, Landrum's Country and T-Bones Records and Cafe, appreciate the focus on the small business community. 

"Small business is everything and I think this is a great time to make small business great again," said Makenzi Pacific with Landrum's Homestead and Village. "I think a lot of people are turning back to their local business owners and trying to shop locally, instead of always going to the big box stores." 

"Small Business Saturday represents a really good opportunity for us to reach out to the community that surrounds us and the city that surrounds us and kind of show what our importance and the importance of other businesses that are locally-based," said Mik Davis, record store manager at T-Bones.  

Saturday was the first day of the 32nd annual "Christmas at the Village" at Landrum's Homestead and Village. T-Bones Records and Cafe has been open since 2002.
