Small Business Saturday deals in the Gaffer District

CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - Black Friday and Cyber Monday are on the horizon and sandwiched in between is Small Business Saturday. 

The day was founded by American Express in 2010 with the United States Senate unanimously passing a resolution in support of it the following year. The credit card company makes free and customized advertisements for storefronts which you will see many of come this weekend. 

Donna's Restaurant opens at 7:00 A.M. for breakfast and will reduce your total check by 10 percent. Owner Donna Robbins hopes residents continue to show support for small stores because she says they fully pay their own bills. 

"We're not a corporate (store)," Robbins said. "If something breaks down, we don't call corporate... a new piece comes in, we pay for it ourselves."

The Cotton Gin is giving 20 percent off its entire store. 

Over on the northside, Carey's Brew House is offering $1 off any draft or glass of wine. 

Back on Market Street, Wooly Minded will give you 15 percent off all sales over $100 or double reward stamps on purchases over $10.

Market Street Antiques will have sales throughout. 

"For one thing, we're unique," Co-Owner Marcia Tinker said. "We've got things you can't find in a big box store or online. We're constantly bringing in treasures."

Some of the many items that the antique store is selling include ceramic Christmas trees and over a dozen old school radios. 

At Ageless Spa on Tioga Avenue, you can buy a $125 gift card for $100. You'll also receive $5 off any single services on Saturday. 

The Gaffer District's office is a strong advocate of shopping local. 

"Keep them going so that they can continue to keep their doors open and keep the money right here in our community," Marketing Director Barbara Whitman said. 

There will also be free gift wrapping available at the Information Center by Centerway Square.
