I know you’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard of Small Business Saturday? Sandwiched right between the two biggest shopping days of the year that mostly support big box and chain stores is a day encouraging you to shop small and support locally owned, independent businesses. Small Business Saturday is celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, this year it falls on Saturday, November 30th.
In 2010 American Express spearheaded the Small Business Saturday movement offering cardholders a credit on their accounts when they shopped at small businesses. Today the movement has grown to being officially recognized by the US Senate and generating an estimated $5.5 Billion in consumer spending at small businesses. If you are an American Express Cardholder you can go to www.shopsmall.com to register your card and receive a $10 credit on your statement. Be sure to register soon as space is limited.
We hope you’ll come by this Saturday and do your part to help make Small Business Saturday one of the biggest shopping days of the year for small businesses like us! In celebration of Small Business Saturday we have a special FREE offer for you. This Saturday, November 30th be one of the first 30 in store customers to mention Small Business Saturday (or first 10 online customers to write “Small Business Saturday” in the additional information section) and you’ll receive a free Shop Small Tote Bag! So… what are you going to put in your tote bag?
