Small Business Saturday

Do you know about Small Business Saturday It's a great day for a local shop, its surrounding community and for YOU, the shopper.small biz

Does the thought of hitting the big box stores on Black Friday make your stomach hurt? Well, don't do it! Instead, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, you can enjoy Small Business Saturday. Created by American Express in 2010, it provides extra motivation for holiday shoppers to patronize businesses that are small and local.

And how does American Express do that? It's pretty simple. Register your card on the American Express web site, use your American Express card to pay for a purchase at a participating business and American Express gives you a credit on your card statement! Yes, it's that simple!

Business owners: Sign up!  Customers: Pledge to shop local!

Whether you're a small business owner or a customer, want to encourage your friends to Shop Small or help rally an entire town, everyone can help spread the word about Small Business Saturday. The more people and the more businesses that get involved, the bigger and more beneficial the day will be.
