Small Business Saturday is held each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The focus is to shop small business and celebrate local community. When you shop small business, you are helping communities to thrive. Small businesses can have anywhere from 1 to 150 employees.
Small businesses are your local pizza shops and restaurants. They are your friends Etsy shop or direct sales business. It’s the consignment sale you go to twice a year, and the car wash you visit weekly. It’s the caterer, photographer, and musician you call when you’re having an event. The hair and nail salon you visit when you want to look your best, and the chiropractor and eye doctor you visit when you want to feel your best. And believe it or not, small businesses are the bloggers you follow online when you are looking for a recipe, parenting advice, DIY and craft projects and so one.
Our communities thrive thanks to small businesses that fit a need that the larger corporations just can’t meet. Let’s celebrate those businesses and the contributions they make this Small Business Saturday, and throughout the remainder of the holiday shopping season.
