ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -

The day after Black Friday is known as Small Business Saturday and St. Louis is considered one of the top places in the country for local holiday shopping.

A survey on Yelp listed St. Louis as the 18th best city for local holiday shopping. It found nearly 150 million Americans are likely to shop at local independent businesses and plan to to spend nearly $40 billion.

Marilyn Keevin runs a dog biscuit bakery and she, like most businesses, will tell you how important the holiday season is for her.

“It gets very slow at the beginning of the year,” said Keevin. “We need this last quarter push to help us make it through the rest of winter.”
