WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Weston-Westport Chamber of Commerce is encouraging residents to support small businesses on Saturday, Nov. 30.
The chamber will feature members’ special “Hot Deal” offers on its website through Dec. 1 in honor of Small Business Saturday. American Express and The National Federation of Independent Businesses are backing the shop-local event.
