Small Business Saturday offers Petworth some great local deals on Nov 24th

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is known as “small business Saturday,” and is an opportunity for residents to shop at their local retail businesses. (Hey, Obama came to Upshur Street Books in 2015 for small biz Saturday!)

This year I think we’re good if the current president stays put on his golf course, but YOU can head out and shop along Upshur Street and the Kennedy Street corridor. Here’s deets:
