Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, it’s celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which falls on November 30th this year. Think about this: over 50% of the working population (120 million individuals) works in a small business.^
Small businesses are the heartbeat of our communities. They’re the corner stores that create jobs. The hardware stores that help build our economy. And the mom and pop shops whose very presence makes a neighborhood, your neighborhood. –American Express
Drop in your neighborhood coffee shop for some hot brew, a homemade scone and the latest happenings. Get your car serviced at a local repair shop. Stop in that corner boutique you’ve been eyeing and pick up a nice gift. Let the small businesses in your community know that you support them.
