Celebrate Small Business Saturday by Shopping Local

11/21/2017

Small Business Saturday® was founded by American Express in 2010 to help bring more customers to local shops. Today, it's a holiday shopping tradition that celebrates a greater nationwide movement dedicated to uniting communities and supporting all kinds of small businesses. Each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, shoppers, business owners and organizations come together to Shop Small, celebrate and share the places they love with the people they love.

This year, Small Business Saturday is Saturday, November 25th. Small Business Saturday has become a national holiday alongside Black Friday and Cyber Monday, creating a global movement. The campaign has broadened to encourage millions of Americans to shop small on Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday season. The success of the program has grown with 95 million people inspired to Shop Small every year. This campaign has helped deliver the one thing small businesses need the most - more business!

Shop Small is about more than just shopping at small businesses. It’s a cause that helps to support local economies and promote vibrant, diverse communities. It’s also a nationwide movement fueled by shoppers, business owners, and organizers who come together and celebrate their communities because they know it matters. “Over 70% of Ardmore Chamber members are small businesses. They are active in the community, serve on boards, provide support for local non-profits and are committed to southern Oklahoma,” notes Chamber President Mita Bates.

The Chamber would like to invite everyone to Shop Small and Shop Local on November 25th. This is a great time to shop with a new small merchant or visit an existing business for the first time. Many of our area businesses will be participating in this event and most will have special sales and promotions.  Look for the Small Business Saturday logo and merchandise at your favorite stores, or visit chamber.ardmore.org to see a list of participating Chamber members.
