The History and Love of Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday is a way to celebrate and promote small businesses. Small businesses are an important part of our economy and many companies are a staple in local communities. Supporting small businesses helps these companies stay in business and can also help you get a deal!
Small Business Saturday began on November 27, 2010. The holiday was created by American Express, the major credit card company. American Express offered deals to individuals who shopped at small businesses using their credit card. This idea took off, and in 2011 the holiday was recognized on a greater scale. In 2012, American Express took Small Business Saturday to the next level and provided small businesses with free internet ad space. After the campaign, it was estimated that $5.5 billion was spent at small businesses across the country. That number has only grown from year to year.
To small business owners, their businesses are much more than a storefront or website. Small business owners use their company to express themselves, to feed their families, and to share their passions with others. On Small Business Saturday, consider shopping at a local coffee shop, boutique, or bakery, rather than the major companies you feel more comfortable with. You might be impressed with what your local businesses have to offer.
