BLACKSBURG (WSLS) - The holiday shopping craze is right around the corner, and Blacksburg leaders want to make sure residents buy local.

The community is observing Small Business Saturday this weekend.  It is a nationwide movement that emphasizes the difference that locally owned businesses make in their towns.  

Blacksburg town council members, as well as Mayor Ron Rordam and other community leaders, signed a pledge to do their part this weekend as they start their holiday shopping.  

There will be small businesses throughout all of Montgomery County participating in the event Saturday as well.
