Ulen, MN -- Avoid the long lines and madness of Black Friday and support small business and take part in Shop Small Saturday instead. Many communities such as Ulen and Halstad are hosting Shop Small events this weekend as part of Small Business Saturday. In Ulen, shoppers can take in pop-up markets at different sites throughout the city. Janet Maesse of the Ulen Civic and Commerce says they welcome shoppers from 3-7pm this Saturday to check out over 30 different vendors spread out at four different locations.

If you work up an appetite while shopping, you can grab some chili and Christmas goodies at the Ulen Events Center, or stop by Petro Serve or the Nordic Lounge as well.

Maesse says Small Business Saturday events such as this are great because not only do they support the local economy, they supports the local people who are helping support the community.

You can also support small business in the Halstad community at their Shop Small Vendor and Craft Show at the Halstad LRC from 9am until 1pm on Saturday. Tanks will be providing a brunch at the LRC during that time, and if you stop by the LRC, Valley Hardware, and Vibrant Salon, you can be entered for a chance to win prizes.
