After we stuff ourselves with turkey and gravy or maybe it is mole with turkey for some, but once the dinner is over, many of us will get ready to go do some shopping during special shopping season after Thanksgiving, better known as Black Friday. Although many might be planning to make a run through a few big box stores, shoppers should also consider to come out and support local business during Small Business Saturday.
Small Business Saturday is considered to be an American shopping holiday that first started on 27 of November in 2010 at Roslindale Village in Massachusetts. This is a day for shoppers to come out and check out small businesses of their communities. (Small Business Saturday is a registered Trademark if American Express Corporation). This year small business Saturday will be November 28.
Although big chain stores can overwhelm shoppers with extensive selection, small businesses have a lot to offer as well. Those small stores tucked somewhere in downtown areas of almost all towns and cities in United States might have many unique and interesting things on sale. What treasures might you find on Small Business Saturday?
When you shop in a Small Business you are not helping a CEO buy a third holiday home. You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom and dad put food on the table.
Save some energy (and money) after Black Friday for Small Business Saturday on November 28 and why not every Saturday. Get your family and head out to explore your community while doing some shopping.
