November 25 is Small Business Saturday. Even if you are not a business owner you should know what this day means and learn why it’s so important to all of us.
“Small business Saturday belongs to all of us.”
Do you know what makes communities strong and vibrant? It’s not government or the economy, it’s you – the consumer! We all make purchases daily and where we decide to spend our money has far reaching impact that we hardly think about. That’s what Small Business Saturday is all about. A dedicated day to intentionally support our very own local businesses by spending some of our holiday budget with them.
So on your next purchasing decision, large or small, consider how you may be able to invest in your own community by making that purchase from a local business owner.
“Small business owners generate an estimated $15.4 billion dollars on Small Business Saturday in 2016.”
Small Business Saturday was started by American Express in 2010 and it’s done nothing but grow and expand it’s reach since the beginning. In 2012 congress unanimously passed a resolution and all 50 states participated paving the way for an annual day devoted to promotion of holiday shopping at local businesses.
“Business associations, nonprofit trade groups, municipalities and public officials unite to form a Small Business Saturday Coalition, and nearly 100 corporations lend their official support.”
So please help promote this day in our community. And please show your support by buying locally from as many mom-and-pop businesses in your own neighborhood as you can. You’ll be making a huge impact in your own community that will be felt for years to come.
