As we roll in to the Holidays we begin the barrage of Holiday sales with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Nestled between these power days is the lesser known Small Business Saturday, however rather than focusing solely on making a sale, Small Business Saturday is intended to bolster local community relationships and outreach.
American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help your local small businesses with this special shopping time. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is Nov 25. Small Business Saturday is the day we celebrate the Shop Small movement to drive shoppers to local merchants across the U.S.
Benefits of Shopping local:
* Small Business represents 54% of U.S. sales, this is the heart of the American market.
*You receive far greater service when dealing directly with local shops.
*You gain access to a greater base of knowledge and experience with passionate owners and operators.
*Keep money local as well as employment opportunities.

This Holiday season we encourage everyone to get out and enjoy the offerings and uniqueness of your local small businesses and community instead of being an “Online Shut-in”. And even if your Holiday gifting doesn’t include a Steel 100 or two, we would enjoy for everyone to stop by say hello!
