You might have turkey on the brain, but for small business owners, getting back into the black is of top of mind.

And with Black Friday looming, Target declaring it's done opening on Thanksgiving, and the competition for dollars fierce, we want to check in with local retailers.

This segment aired on November 24, 2021.
