PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Many small and locally owned businesses are taking part in Small Business Saturday this year.

This comes after shoppers gathered for Black Friday deals the day before.

Small Business Saturday was created by American Express as a way to encourage people to support local businesses.

Last year, people spent roughly $14.3 billion at small independent businesses.
