Shop Small, Support Your Community

It’s Small Business Saturday week, one of our favorite times of the year at CCC.

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.

I know that my neighborhood wouldn’t be the same without Angel Falls Coffee Company, Capri Pizza or Zack’s Fire & Ice. Who are your favorite mom & pop shops?

To maximize participation on this important day, American Express has created the Small Business Saturday map to help you locate where to shop. Are you an AMEX card member? Then register for a $10 credit when you shop small on November 30th. Hurry, registration is limited! Are you a fellow small business owner?

About Jaime Shine

I love to write. While most kids were playing with blocks or dolls, I was publishing magazines and newspapers – feature articles, ads, sports box scores, the whole nine yards. From promotions director to advertising roles to branding projects, I’ve always been interested in all forms of marketing. That interest blossomed into a career path and led me to open my own business, which has always been a dream of mine. And I’d love to work my magic for you.
