small business saturday, november 30

As you plan your shopping missions for Black Friday, make it a point to include Saturday, November 30, which is Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010 to promote shopping at locally owned businesses, and support local economies in the holiday season. It was intentionally set to be the day after Black Friday and serve as a contrast to the promotion of big box stores that have changed business for local stores. While Small Business Saturday is a great one-day event, it's important to consider shopping at local businesses as much as you can throughout the year.

A great part of the Small Business Saturday site is the map that lets you view participating small businesses in your area. And American Express customers can get discounts on their participating small-business purchases on November 30.

To get in on the action, follow Small Business Saturday on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This Saturday, get out and support your local shops and restaurants! Your shopping keeps more money and jobs in your city. And your loved ones will receive great unique gifts with personality.
