Small Business Saturday
November 29, 2014
“This is a day to celebrate the local businesses that help make your neighborhood great–and anyone can join in. The day encourages people to shop small on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. When you shop small it can lead to big things. Take for example a cycling enthusiast opens up a bike shop, turning a dream into reality. The owner hires locals to help run the shop. With extra help, the bike business begins to take off. More sales could mean more in local taxes, which would fund things like better roads and parks…..” American Express
“For every $100 spent at local small businesses, $68 returns to community” -Civic Economics
In an age of global markets and capitalism, it’s far too easy for small businesses to struggle and fail, even if they have superior products and services. We have the power to change this, and Small Business Saturday encourages people everywhere to shop with small businesses for just one day, and to change the world a little bit.
