PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – More than 70 local stores in Shadyside teamed up today to offer deals for “Small Business Saturday.”

One Shadyside boutique, Pursuits, is offering 20 percent off handbags for anyone who brings in a gently-used purse to donate to an organization called POWER that helps women starting over.

Pursuits owner, Maria McManus, says the support from locals is what keeps her business afloat.

“I have a clientele that truly comes in to support me,” McManus said. “And that’s why I’ve been successful and we have been here for nine years.”

The city also decided to waive meter enforcement Saturday to attract shoppers.

The shopping day was created by credit card giant American Express to help small businesses struggling during the recession.

This is the third year for “Small Business Saturday.”
