Local stores throughout the Scenic City say, foot traffic was higher this “Small Business Saturday” compared to last year. 

Channel 3 visited several shops inside Warehouse Row and near the Walnut Street Bridge where signs were in full force displaying discounts. 

"Nell's" sales associate Devin Schell offered shoppers cookies, coffee, champagne and a percentage off the total purchase.

Schell says, they wanted to thank their loyal customers who have helped keep the lights on since 2007. 

Warehouse Row shops also saw a steady flow of shoppers. Earlier in the week JCrew and Anthropologie opened their doors offering grand opening discounts. 

Those new additions help give the small businesses around them a boost like Cosmetic Market. 

The majority of the stores offered 10-25% off the total purchase.
