White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett will tout “Small Business Saturday” in Chicago’s Hyde Park, where she will, as in past years, urge shoppers to buy at local stores. She will be visiting three merchants on Harper Ave. and 53rd, near the block she was raised–which is close to President Barack Obama’s Kenwood home.

From the White House: “This Saturday, November 30th, Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett will join a number of White House and Cabinet Officials, along with millions of Americans around the country in paying tribute to the small businesses that drive our economy, and serve to define our communities. Taking part in Small Business Saturday, she will make stops at three small businesses in Chicago.”
