PARKERSBURG, W. Va. (WTAP) - Small business Saturday is an American shopping holiday after Black Friday.
The Dils Center in Parkersburg hosted a small business expo bringing local businesses together to showcase their products.
Owners of the Dils Center say, they want to support all small businesses in the Mid-Ohio Valley and when the community knows about these businesses it can help keep money in the community and help small businesses continue to grow.
"Instead of the big companies in the big city, they're world known," said Vincent Kunze, co-owner of Dils Center. But nobody really addresses or acknowledges the small ones and that's what we want to do today."
Kunze says, he wants to give small businesses the exposure they deserve.
Owners of the Dils Center say, they have many local events planned for the future.
