FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The holiday season is fast approaching. People are thinking about getting gifts and preparing meals. Especially for Small Business Saturday, coming up in a few weeks.

But, something people may not be thinking about is safety.

President and CEO of Better Business Bureau serving Northern Indiana, Marjorie Stephens, joined First News to provide useful safety information.

A local shopping event coming up where you’ll want to keep these tips in mind is Small Business Saturday. It is November 25 from 11 a.m.  5 p.m. Park, shop, and ride free trolleys for an exciting shopping experience through Downtown Fort Wayne, West Main Shops, and the Wells Street Corridor.
