Shopping receipts can benefit H-F Parents Association Scholarship Program

Businesses in both Homewood and Flossmoor will welcome shoppers Nov. 26 for national Small Business Saturday, thanks in part to the newly revived Flossmoor Business Association (FBA).

Sponsored nationally by American Express since 2010, the day is designed to encourage holiday shoppers to patronize small, local business establishments. Nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which features big box retail and e-commerce shopping, Small Business Saturday invites residents to spend their dollars close to home.
