For those who consider shopping a national sport, Friday is the big game. But for the rest of us, the crown jewel of Thanksgiving weekend is Small Business Saturday (SBS)– offering the perfect opportunity to support the local shops that give Houston its unique flavor.

SBS is a thriving, nationwide movement focused on promoting the small businesses that often get overlooked in the holiday shopping frenzy. This November 30th, plenty of Houstonians will hit the streets in search of the perfect local shopping experience. Don’t forget to give a little love to local businesses that keep Midtown Houston going.

For grassroots local arts, check out the innovative, recycled works at Harambee Art Gallery or the multidisciplinary works on display at Arka Art.

To keep your engines purring, you can count on the skilled mechanics at Ron’s for anything from minor maintenance to major repairs. For fussy European motors, Silvio’s has the skills to keep things running smoothly. 

Solopreneurs and digital business owners will feel right at home getting down to business at Wi-cowork, and Kwik Kopy has got you covered for printing, binding and copying. 

If you need to take some clothes to the cleaners, Midtown Cleaners and Rossinian offer affordable, timely dry cleaning right in the neighborhood.
