New Bern businesses excited for Small Business Saturday

NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) — The shopping spree continues tomorrow as people prepare for Small Business Saturday. One of the towns infamous for local stores is New Bern. Business owners and customers agree the small shops add to the culture of the city.

Tom Janyssek and his wife have owned their downtown store for six years. They say while big box stores draw in big crowds, they aren’t worried about sales this weekend.

“It’s sometimes tough to compete with that but at the same time we have special customers who understand small business and how important it is,” says Janyssek.

He says city leaders are a key player in making small business successful.
