PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

The holiday season is upon us. Which means family reunions, putting out the light decorations and of course, shopping.

We all know of Black Friday, but maybe you want to shop the local places and help them instead. 

We have compiled nine local shops to go this holiday season. 

While Small Business Saturday falls on November 25, we recommend going to these following places this holiday season.
