Small Business Saturday is fast approaching, will you be getting involved this year? As a small business, you absolutely should. Local businesses are what make each and every community unique and vibrant across all cities in America.
Watch the full episode:
According to AMEX, in 2017 an estimated 108 million consumers reported shopping or dining at local independently-owned businesses on Small Business Saturday – generating roughly $12 billion in reported spend.
Imagine the impact a Small Business Saturday event can have on your own community. When people shop locally the money flows back into your local economy, unlike big-box retailers where money flows right back to the business.
