CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Gov. Brian Sandoval is urging Nevadans to support local, small businesses during the fast-approaching holiday shopping season.

Sandoval on Monday signed a proclamation designating Nov. 24 as "Small Business Saturday" in Nevada. The day coincides with one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year, coming right after Thanksgiving.

The small-business promotion was established in 2010 and takes place the day after Black Friday, the traditional start of the holiday shopping season. It is intended to encourage shoppers to patronize independent local businesses.

Sandoval says small businesses create jobs that help boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods.
