U.S. President Barack Obama (C) pays for purchases at Pleasant Pops, as daughters Malia and Sasha enjoy a popsicle, in Washington. Today is Small Business Saturday, which was started to encourage shoppers to buy locally and from brick-and-mortar stores, and serves as a counterpoint to the traditionally busy shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday.
