With all the focus on the big box stores completely changing “Black Friday”, small businesses in our area are reminding shoppers that Saturday is “small business Saturday”
American Express is partnering again with small businesses all around the nation to promote Small Business Saturday. It’s a relatively new tradition that became successful during its first few years in existence.
In 2012, American Express reported nearly 74 million people patronized small businesses during that year’s Small Business Saturday. Last year, consumers spent an estimated $14 billion at small businesses on that day alone.
Local businesses are joining in this national effort.
