Our weekly roundup of the most relevant articles this week in the small business world.

7 things small businesses should do when fighting inflation

As labor and other costs rise at small businesses, owners need to look across their companies for ways to protect their profits.

Small Business Saturday was a bomb this year, but not in a good way. While MSNBC’s J.J. Rathberg bragged on “Morning Joe” that sales on Saturday reached a record $17.8 billion, she was largely reticent about the number of people who shopped or dined that day.  This year only about 104 million Americans came out to shop small, down from 108 million last year and 112 million in 2016. Instead of flocking to Main Street USA this year, shoppers were much more likely to go online or to the national retailers to take advantage of sweet deals, which were more plentiful this year, according to an analysis of 10,500 promotions across 17 major retailers conducted by Numerator, a market intelligence firm.
