Shop Small Business Saturday at Ward Centers

Sponsored Edition: Pretty Little Buyers

Lei Chic

The past 24 hours have been kind of a blur. You remember: a glorious deep-fried turkey. Your aunt's famous homemade pumpkin crunch. The Patriots spanking the Jets.

Yeah, Thanksgiving was pretty awesome this year - so awesome that the allure of Black Friday doorbusters couldn't wake you from your tryptophan-induced food coma.

Don't despair. You can still score amazing deals tomorrow.

For the first time ever, Ward Centers is participating in American Express' Small Business Saturday. From 10 a.m.-9 p.m., dozens of locally-owned stores (and two restaurants) will be offering exclusive discounts and more.

Receive a free gift with regular-priced purchase of $50 or more at Island Soap & Candle Works.

Forget Thanksgiving. With stores like Island Soap & Candle Works, Big Island Delights, Local Fever and MisFortune all offering free gifts with purchase, it'll practically feel like Christmas.

Especially when you're picking up a pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes for 30 to 50 percent off at C. June Shoes, stocking up on Dermalogica skincare products for 15 percent off at Salon Bobbi & Guy, or scoring an amazing $45 Kakaako Kitchen holiday gift with a vacuum-sealed, frozen 10 oz. prime cut ribeye steak, special Alaea salt blend and $10 gift certificate basket for that special chef in your life.

  Lei Chic
Get 50 percent off all dine-in pupu at Big City Diner with a beverage purchase per person from 10 p.m.-close on Saturday only.

Most of these deals are available to all shoppers, but since Small Business Saturday was started by American Express, registered American Express cardholders get even more perks - like zero sales tax at Executive Chef and Bath & Butler, or the chance to score a $25 credit when spending $25 or more at a participating Small Business Saturday merchant.

It's like being in Santa's workshop, helping yourself to the "nice" pile of presents; if Santa's workshop was filled with small, local businesses instead of elves.

Either way, it's all about the little guy.

Small Business Saturday takes place from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. at Ward Centers. Click here for a complete list of deals and discounts.
