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.
