Small Business Saturday is on its way. Are you ready to shop local, support your neighbors, and get all of your holiday shopping finished before the rush hits?
On November 29, 2014, establishments around the country will be participating in Small Business Saturday: “In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. 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.”
So, what are some small businesses that you can benefit (along with benefiting yourself!)? We’re so glad you asked:
