Local business representatives explain why Small Business Saturday is important for the Frankfort community.

"You roll up your sleeves ... and prepare for the best and for the worst," said Glavas, who owned the Courtyard Bistro for 12 years and has worked his share of Fall Festival weekends. "It's either feast or famine." READ: Fall Fest Survival Guide: An Events Schedule of What's Happening When It's a common drill among …
