The Saturday after Thanksgiving has become known as Small Business Saturday, an opportunity for shoppers to visit and shop at small businesses.
American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010 and in 2011 more than 100 million people shopped at small business on that day. Whether shopping or dining, customers help support local small businesses on what is regularly known as the biggest shopping weekend of the year.
The Small Business Saturday website has free tools for small businesses to use to promote the day and encourage customer participation. For more information for your small business visit the website at www.shopsmall.com
