What is Small Business Saturday?

Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after U.S. Thanksgiving to encourage people to shop small and support local businesses and communities.

Why shop small?

To help communities and curb the appetite for shopping at giant corporate retailers, the shop small movement was created. 90% of consumers surveyed said Small Business Saturday has had a positive impact on their community — and that’s exactly what Small Business Saturday is striving to achieve. Small Business Saturday has brought back the magic of shopping small and has helped local communities thrive during the holidays and year-round.
