Small Business Saturday is a national campaign to support small businesses within our communities. We encourage you to participate by shopping small on Saturday, November 24.
We invite our community to start local, start small. Supporting your local businesses fosters a stronger community at large. Consider starting small before you take your spending outside of our community or to the web. We know that our local businesses may not have everything that you are looking for, but we ask that your first step would be to find what you can here. When your local businesses grow, your community grows.
According to Forbes, "As the founding partner of Small Business Saturday, American Express created Small Business Saturday to celebrate and support small businesses, while welcoming any business to be a part of the day. Their goal was simple yet their dreams were big. They wanted to help drive more attention to small businesses during one of the busiest shopping seasons of the year, and fortunately for small businesses across the country, their idea has, in fact, become a big, big deal."
USA Today calls the day "a sales powerhouse, driving traffic to local and small businesses during the all-important holiday season."
