If you’re hungry, want to watch a movie or go on a shopping spree here’s a few places to get your fix on Small Business Saturday this year.


Barb City Bagels

This quaint bagel shop is well known for delicious homemade bagels and spreads. Barb City Bagels is a town favorite and just opened a new location at 118 E Lincoln Hwy in DeKalb. A convenient location for when you need a study break.


Sycamore State Theater

If you’re looking for a cheap date, check out the Sycamore State Theater to see a recent movie. The historic theater is located at 420 West State Street in Sycamore. Stop by and support Sycamore’s small theater.


Cracker Jax

If you need some retail therapy to get your mind off your exams, check out Cracker Jax at 118 North State St. They have vintage clothing and antiques which are sure to cure your craving for shopping on a Saturday Afternoon.
