The day after Thanksgiving is known by retailers and shoppers alike as Black Friday, the first and traditionally busiest day of the holiday shopping season. In advance of its arrival, Congresswoman Kathy Hochul was appearing at the first of several stops to encourage local consumers to consider supporting smaller, independently owned businesses this season.
Hochul will visit six stores within her district over the Thanksgiving weekend. On Wednesday, she appeared at Clayton's Gifts and Toys on Main Street in Williamsville. WBFO's Michael Mroziak was there to cover her appearance and has more in his report on the audio link.
