Shop Small Saturday is a big day for small businesses across America. It's a day that we celebrate the brave souls who are willing to take the risk and open up their own business. It's the day we celebrate our local economies. It is also a day of shopping, lunches out with friends, and all out fun! Here are my top fun facts all about Shop Small Saturday!
Can you believe the support! I love reading this fun fact! That means you guys are going out and utilizing your consumer buying power. You are participating within your local community and you are helping families. Which is my favorite part about shopping small. I love knowing my purchase is supporting a family and an entrepreneur.
We all know that Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, Black Friday is that Friday, and we even know all about cyber Monday, but Shop Small Saturday does seem to be forgotten. So share the news with your friends, family, and neighbors. Remember to Shop Small the Saturday after thanksgiving!
Did you know Shop Small Saturday was started by American express in 2010? This new added shopping holiday supports small business around the country. This program not only advocates for the small businesses it has offered a simple easy way for small businesses to advertise during a time where advertising coast can feel overwhelming!
Even though we hear about big box a lot and we feel like they are always there reaching into our pocket book looking for a quick buy. The truth is that the U.S is full of small businesses. So much so that it is easy for you to show your support everyday of the year. Even though we have this national holiday supporting small businesses. It should be noted that small businesses need you every day support not just one day out of the year.
I hope you enjoyed these awesome fun facts!
Both MaKayla and I are very excited for Shop Small Saturday this year and can not wait to see you on November 24th helping us celebrate.
