As we all know, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the biggest shopping days in America. Large retail chains and mega-large e-commerce sites seem to be the main focus every year. This year, a movement has begun asking, “What about a day meant to benefit the Small Businesses that play such a vital role in our economy?” And people are answering!
Small Business Saturday, which is being held on Nov. 27, is a national movement to encourage shoppers to make a commitment to go out on that Saturday after Thanksgiving and support local business. According to the official Small Business Saturday web page, it is, “A day to come together in support of the small businesses we love. The shops and restaurants that employ our neighbors and reinvest our money close to home. The businesses that are the heartbeat of our communities and local economies.”
You can see more and join the movement by logging on to Facebook and going to the official Small Business Saturday Facebook Page.
