In between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is another way to get your holiday shopping done. Small Business Saturday is your chance to discover local gems. Since 2010, the tradition has been kept alive by hundreds of thousands of shoppers around the country, all of them eager to support their local businesses.
As opposed to Black Friday, the day on which large retailers offer discounts and promotions, the Saturday after Thanksgiving focuses on putting the spotlight on smaller, more local companies. Not only does this mean you’ll find things larger retailers don’t offer (like handmade products and one-of-a-kind items), but you’ll also be supporting the local businesses that create jobs, preserve neighborhoods and help the economy.
Post-Thanksgiving shopping can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Small Business Saturday is a way to personalize holiday gift-giving by finding unique presents for your friends and family while boosting the local economy. It’s a win-win!
