(KMOV) -- Saturday is the first-ever “Small Business Saturday” across the country, and business owners are hoping shoppers saved some money to shop in their stores.

“Small Business Saturday” is designed to encourage holiday shoppers to move out of the malls and into neighborhood stores and shops. 
 
The federal government says small businesses are essential to the economy because the 28-million small businesses across America create 65-percent of new jobs.
