Black Dog Running Co. gives back to customers on Small Business Saturday

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - With the end of Thanksgiving, comes the start of the holiday shopping season. 
A follow-up to Black Friday is Small Business Saturday: a shopping holiday celebrated to give patronage to businesses across the country that are small and local. And the Grand Strand is no different. 

The Black Dog Running Company is a locally-owned walking and running specialty store that’s celebrating Small Business Saturday with not only discounts, but a special in-store celebration.  Daniel Brass has owned the Black Dog Running Company for three years. Brass prides Black Dog in promoting a healthy lifestyle to the communities of the Grand Strand. 

In celebration of Small Business Saturday, the store is a hosting both a 3 mile and 5 mile group run.  In this way, the store has become a meeting place for much of the local running community.  After the run, the festivities continue with a free breakfast thanks to help from Pee Dee Bicycles, a neighboring local business.  They share Sports Corner, a group of small, local athletic stores with product understanding and customer service that they say give chain stores a run for their money. Customer Christine Rockey says even if the products are similar, Black Dog tends to know more about them.

The Small Business Saturday event is one of the ways owner Brass is trying to give back to the community that supports him.  With the holiday shopping season now underway, Black Dog is holding a sidewalk sale with raffle prizes and giving away scratch-offs with 15 to 50 percent in savings.
