Local shoppers in Bayonne and Jersey City went to Small Business Saturday and took advantage of discounts that local stores had stored for their communities.
Reeses hair bits in Bayonne on the 24th street between Broadway and Avenue E had 10 percent of the entire deal on Saturday.
“It’s very important for society to come out and support us,” says Carrissa Golomb, the owner
The bustling shop, named after Golomb’s nine-year-old daughter, sells holiday boots, pajamas, dresses, tailor made bows and headbands for children and more.
Small Business Saturday is a movement launched in 2010 by American Express to strengthen sales at retailers around the country.
“I love shopping here … it’s personal,” said Dawn Spiers, a regular Reese customer who shopped on Saturday for his eight-year-old daughter, Ireland. “It’s easier than shopping at malls, and it’s a great way to give back to society.”
As the only business owner Golomb, 35, opened her store four years ago after she received values from social media media for Creative Creative Boots and Kids Headbands, now ranging from $ 5 to $ 20. [1

Omar Bouzarari did not see himself having a pet store Lagra. But now he and two other partners have two branches of Fussy Friends, one in Downtown Jersey City, the other in Heights.
“Every day is Small Business Saturday,” said Bouzarari, referring to how often his stores offer discounts.
Bouzarari, 36, said the deal was good on Saturday at the Heights Department on 458 Central Avenue, which opened a month ago.
“People bought sweaters, rocks, toys,” he said.
Heather Gruss, a customer, said she loves the pet food store.
“It’s a god-send for this neighborhood,” said Gruss, who acted for his two cats.
Bouzarari said it could be difficult to compete with the online industry, building his business on relationships with society.
“I usually buy Amazon, but I like going to the store,” says Peter Calderon, a customer who buys food for his German shepherd.
Calderon added that Fussy Friends also meets their purchasing needs by ordering products that are not in stock.
“Ninety percent of the reason why people we are because of how we treat them,” said Bouzarari.
“I do not call them to customers. The business is called Fussy Friends. They are our friends.”
