Help make a lasting impact in our community on Small Business Saturday®, November 29th, 2014. Small Business Saturday (#SmallBusinessSaturday) is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after U.S. Thanksgiving during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year. First observed on November 27, 2010, it is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores respectively. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local. Small Business Saturday is a registered trademark of American Express Corporation.
In other words, Small Business Saturday is a day to celebrate the local businesses that help make our neighborhood great — and anyone can join in, from business owners to shoppers to government officials. This year, Small Business Saturday is Nov 29. Become a part of a new rewarding holiday shopping tradition of celebrating and supporting small businesses and all they do for our community.
