Small Business Saturday Overview

Small Business Saturday: A Salute to Local Enterprises

What is Small Business Saturday?

Every year, on the first Saturday following Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday is celebrated in the United States. Established in 2010, this special day pays tribute to the backbone of our economy: small businesses. It encourages consumers to support local, independently owned establishments and helps communities thrive.

Why is it worth celebrating?

Small Business Saturday is not just a day for shopping , it's a movement. With small businesses employing nearly 60 million Americans, this initiative fosters a sense of community and highlights the importance of supporting the local economy. Local businesses give neighborhoods a unique character, help create new jobs, and promote innovation. As customers spend their dollars closer to home, they help create a positive impact on their communities.

Key Themes and Traditions

Besides the nationwide call to shop small, Small Business Saturday is a day of appreciation, creativity, and camaraderie. It encompasses various themes, symbols, and traditions, some of which include:

  1. Community Involvement: By visiting local shops, cafes, and restaurants, people can engage with their neighbors and support the businesses that bring vitality to the community.
  2. Unique Products & Services: One-of-a-kind items, personalized service, and homemade goods are some of the treasures that can be discovered at small businesses.

Let’s rewind to 2010. American Express had the smarts to create Small Business Saturday as a response to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. They got the ball rolling by offering incentives to cardholders for shopping small. Clever, right?

In 2011, the U.S. Senate officially recognized this fabulous day. And the momentum didn’t stop there! From neighborhood champions to widespread support, Small Business Saturday caught on like wildfire.

Fast forward to today, and this thriving tradition has evolved into a worldwide movement. People flock to their favorite local shops and show some much-needed love to the small businesses that keep communities alive and kicking.

So, what’s the takeaway? Small Business Saturday reminds us that it’s not just about the big-box stores. Our local gems are every bit as deserving of our patronage. Let’s keep this momentum going and show our support year-round!
