Small Business Saturday Helps Big Cause in Maine

Small Business Saturday

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Saturday, November 26, 2016, is National Small Business Shopping Day.  Shopkeepers welcome you to take a stroll, feel the breeze, smell the pine and food in the air, and most importantly, help make a difference in Maine.
