Sure everyone is getting over the shopping experience of this year’s Black Friday; good or bad Black Friday at some stores began on Thursday evening and will continue through the weekend. For those who were not interested in the madness that is Black Friday or even for those who were, now is the time to do some relaxing shopping and support the movement that is Small Business Saturday. Today please get out and patronize your favorite mom and pop store because it is so important to the economy for all consumers to support small business.
You may or may not know that small businesses employ more people and provide the most new jobs which helps our economy thrive. American Express began Small Business Saturday’s in 2010 and they continue to sponsor the event in which thousands of small businesses across the nation participate in each year. Small business is undeniably a driving force in how well the economy does. Although Black Friday can definitely put a damper on small business earnings, Small Business Saturday can be the small boost these businesses need. Get some holiday shopping done today at a small business near you and continue to support them not just on this Saturday but every day of the year.
