I recently saw a commercial – let’s be honest, I see a lot of them – and it actually resonated with me.
Small Business Saturday is a newish initiative by American Express, highlighting our cities’ best small businesses, and encouraging consumers – like yours truly – to get out and support our local businesses.
Even one purchase can make a difference, so before you spend all your allowance on big screen TVs at big box stores this Black Friday, please consider making one holiday purchase on Saturday, November 26 at a local small business.
In addition to being a good neighbor, tons of local businesses are offering additional promotions. To see what’s happening in your neighborhood, check out the convenient city guides on Facebook. (I was really excited to see P45 and Ikram among the businesses participating in Chicago.)
And make sure to take advantage of Small Business Saturday on November 26.
Not to mention patronizing local businesses the other 364 days of the year.
Leave a comment below and let me know what is your favorite small business. And if you are a small business and have a special Saturday deal, leave it below.
