2018 SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

2018 SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY

It’s hard for small businesses to compete with the big guys. But that’s why there’s Small Business Saturday. American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010, giving small businesses and brick-and-mortar stores across the country a special boost and a way to get shoppers’ attentions between Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday Nov. 24 this year).

Shop Small Movement has gained momentum, as local officials across the nation take notice and promote Small Business Saturday. In 2011, the Senate unanimously passes a resolution in support of the day. By 2012, officials in all 50 states participate. Cities like Santa Monica even have Small Business Saturday eve ... read more
