Memphis, Tenn. (WMC) – The Memphis Grizzlies hosted a Small Business Saturday event at the FedEx Forum to draw attention to small businesses in Bluff City.
“It’s nice to know that the Grizzlies care about this city,” Jamal Bodie said.
Boddie opens a store to sell a game he developed called “You Can’t Say That.” The game is similar to the popular game Taboo and consists of all Memphis-centric cards.
“It’s just about the people, places and history of Memphis,” Boddie told Action News 5. He said Saturday’s event at the FedEx Forum was one of the best days for his fledgling business.
Across town, Cooper-Young Gallery and Gifts said they also had a profitable day.
“It may be raining, but people have been coming and going all day,” owner Jenean Morrison said.
Morrison said while Small Business Saturday was profitable, she wanted to maintain traffic throughout the year.
“I hope people can be introduced to our business today and they will come throughout the year.
