Small Business Saturday this November 30th

Posted by Janee Auten, Membership Coordinator on 11/24/2019

Work on your shopping list and mark your calendars for Small Business Saturday on November 30, 2019!

Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and U.S. consumers have reported spending over an estimated $85 Billion at independent retailers and restaurants over these eight days alone. In 2018, you can get out and support the places you love with the people you love, right here in the Ardmore area.

Because an average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at small businesses in the U.S. stays in the local community, consumers’ local impact during the holiday shopping season is significant for our community. Every dollar spent at small businesses creates an additional $.50 cents in local business activity, according to the ‘Small Business Economic Impact Study’ from American Express

As a consumer, you’re a key part in helping small businesses thrive. By shopping or dining at small businesses throughout the year, you’re showing your support for the small businesses in your neighborhood and in the community you call your own.

Anyone can support Small Business Saturday simply by shopping small next Saturday. Get up, get out and shop or dine at a local small business, invite friends to shop with you, or share on your social networks where you #ShopSmall.
