A week after the holiday shopping season got into full swing, the numbers for the third annual Small Business Saturday are in and according to the National Federation of Independent Business and American Express, consumers spent an estimated $5.5-billion with small merchants.
That's good news for small businesses as pre-holiday surveys estimated U.S. consumers would spend $5.3-billion.
Many small business owners say the day exceeded their expectations.
