Shoppers take a break to support local restaurants on Small Business Saturday

Many people survived turkey day with the family and dealing with the massive crowds during Black Friday.

Now, it's Small Business Saturday and area shoppers are taking a break from all that spending to help support local restaurants.

Rick Smoot loves being his own boss.

"I like being able to see people that have been eating here for 28, almost 29 years. We have a lot of them that still come in and its fun having to see them and visit with them and talk to them and see how they are doing," said Smoot.
