    Correction: A previous version of this article wrongly stated that all small businesses are invited to set up a booth in the Keauhou Shopping Center’s parking lot for Small Business Saturday on Nov. 25, when actually businesses must contact the center to ensure that they meet all the requirements for participation and that space remains available. At this point, it is too late to register for this year’s event. However, those who wish to register for next year’s celebration may contact the management office by calling 808-322-3000. It is the policy of West Hawaii Today to promptly correct any incorrect information as soon as it is brought to the attention of the paper.
