Small Business Saturday...
October 26, 2018
In 2010, as small businesses were hurting from the recession, American Express launched Small Business Saturday the Saturday after Thanksgiving in an effort to encourage people to spend holiday shopping dollars with small businesses.
Fast forward to 2017 & consumers spent an estimated 12 BILLION dollars with local, independently owned businesses! In just 8 short years...Small Business Saturday has become a national movement benefiting small businesses, their local communities & the economy overall.
Now's the time to prepare! AMEX offers FREE tools & marketing materials to help you promote your business, plan an event or just spread the word. But don't delay, orders for the free promotional materials must be placed by November 6th to ensure on time arrival!
For many businesses the last 2 months of the year represent up to 40% of total annual sales! Take advantage of this day for your business & also to support other small businesses.
When small businesses win, everyone wins!!!
