NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

All kinds of suggestions are provided to small retailers about how to generate business to their store on Small Business Saturday.

In Nacogdoches, the oh-so-popular Wassail Fest will attract customers, said downtown merchant Gerry Larabee.

"It's always been well received," Larabee said. "People bring their guests from out of town, and everybody is not wanting to go do the big pack stores, so they love coming downtown and strolling around seeing what we've got for sale, sipping wassail. It is a free event."

The Nacogdoches Wassail Fest is tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Most all the downtown merchants are participating. For the first time this year, businesses beyond downtown are participating.

Laine's Hallmark, Sparkle Boutique, Party 'n Things, and M&S Gift Shop are joining in on the fun.
