There's a lot of hype around shopping and retailers around the Thanksgiving holiday.

Black Friday is always big for big-box retailers, and small businesses with clever marketing plans can benefit from Small Business Saturday, too.

In fact, Yelp said in a recent report that Denver is the seventh-best city to shop local, down from No. 3 last year.

The report from the San Francisco-based social review website comes from "sifting through millions of Yelp reviews to find out which cities in the U.S. are the best for finding gifts at local businesses."

See the full list at the Denver Business Journal.
