What is Small Business Saturday?

Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (November 30th). It is a counterpart to Black Friday & Cyber Monday, which highlight big box retails & online shopping respectively. Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize locally owned brick & mortar businesses. It is part of an ongoing national/local Shop Small campaign.

Help make the 10th annual Small Business Saturday a big success!
