CHICAGO (CBS) — Santa and his crew came to visit for Bronzeville’s 9th annual Small Business Saturday celebration.

Organizers are inviting everyone to “fall in love with Bronzeville” and spend holiday dollars locally.

A community leader said when you support small businesses, you support your neighbors.

He said the pandemic and other challenges have only strengthened resolve in Bronzeville, and the local businesses have remained resilient and focused.
