If you live in a small town or shop them chances are you've heard about Shopping Small Business Saturdays. Many years ago, living in Frederick, MD, I ran across a few stores that were advertising this new event. I recall speaking with many of the shop owners and you could feel the excitement about this becoming an epic event. First observed in November 2010, American Express launched Shop Small Business Saturday, a campaign to help recognize small brick and mortar shops in local communities. A counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which traditionally benefited larger retail chains. This year, I am happy to join this great event as a small shop owner and to promote this event in our small historic town of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Here is a neat info-graphic that illustrates just how important this event is for small shops and communities around your area. So do something great for your community and shop small on Small Business - Saturday, November 29th! What better timing than helping your local shops during this holiday shopping season.
