Shop Small This Weekend!

Are you looking for the perfect gift for a loved one this holiday season?  Start at a small business in your area!  Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday.  This day is dedicated to supporting small businesses on the busiest shopping weekend of the year.

BBB has teamed up with American Express OPEN to spread the word on why small businesses are so awesome. This is the third year in a row that the Saturday after Thanksgiving has been declared to be Small Business Saturday. Sandwiched between “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday,” it is a perfect way to support the small businesses that you love…and to discover some new ones, too.

Last year, more than one hundred million people came together to Shop Small in their communities on Small Business Saturday. Whether you’re a small business owner or a customer, you’ll want to encourage your friends to Shop Small. Or help rally an entire town! Everyone can help spread the word about Small Business Saturday. The more people and the more businesses that get involved, the bigger and more beneficial the day will be.
