Happy Friday! We hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday yesterday! Some of you may be out and about today, fighting the madness that is Black Friday shopping. Some of you may be resting at home with family and friends… and that’s okay too! A lesser known shopping day that happens tomorrow, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, is Small Business Saturday. Have you heard of it?
Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. This event, which was founded by American Express in 2010, is celebrated yearly on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. This year’s event falls on Saturday, Nov. 30th.
Small businesses are the heartbeats of our neighborhoods and communities and they deserve our attention and support, too! Maybe Black Friday isn’t your thing, and if that is the case, you may love to shop and lend support on Small Business Saturday.
