Support Your Favorite Small Business With a Patch Shout-Out

With Small Business Saturday coming this weekend, you can help drive feet — and wallets — to your favorite independent business.

You might be the type who finds sleeping on a freezing sidewalk for the best Black Friday deals exciting. Or perhaps you've already started working out your mouse-clicking finger for Cyber Monday. But if neither scenario appeals to you, there is an alternative — Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday, conceived by American Express to help spotlight the efforts of local small businesses, comes at the beginning of the big holiday shopping sprint — this Saturday — and encourages shoppers not to bypass Main Street for the mega-mall.

Campbell Patch would love to hear which small businesses you can't live without in Campbell. Tell us in the comments which independently owned business is a must for shoppers this Saturday and why. Your shout-out could help a sector of our economy that has created 65 percent of the net new jobs over the last 17 years.

So when you must get your nails done just right, discover that perfect bottle of wine or have a craving for an amazing sandwich, where do you go time and time again?

My favorite Downtown Campbell businesses are Rocket Fizz and Orchard Valley Coffee. Rocket Fizz is awesome for specialty, hard to find, and even "regular" sodas and candies. The prices are pretty good too. The owners and employees are so nice and friendly. They even told me that if they didn't have what I was looking for they could add it to the weekly order for me! OVC is just plain great. Yummy coffees and snacks, free wifi, tons of comfy seating, and even occasional live music! Love it :)
