Omaha Small Business Saturday Guide: Interactive Map, Specials and More!

As Black Friday rolls around, we see more and more advertisements for large, corporate stores. It’s easy to forget Omaha’s incredible selection of independent shops, boutiques and specialty options when we’re inundated with festive adverts every day.

Small Business Saturday began in 2010 as a way to promote and encourage holiday shopping with local entrepreneurs and creators across the country. Whether you venture out in the early hours for Black Friday or you choose to #OptOutside, follow-up the holiday with a Saturday shopping tour through our favorite places in town. To make it easy, we made a list of local shops that will be offering specials throughout the day. Start planning your route today with our interactive map!
