What Is Small Business Saturday?
Originated in 2010 by American Express, Small Business Saturday is a national shopping day that takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This small business day gives consumers the opportunity to Shop Small® and support their local communities.
Over the past eight years millions of consumers get out and Shop Small. In 2017, approximately 108 million consumers generated an estimated $12 billion for small companies on Small Business Saturday nationwide.
Start gearing up now for Small Business Saturday, let your customers know how you plan to celebrate local business and encourage them to do the same.
