It’s no secret that the Friday after Thanksgiving is one of the largest shopping days of the year. It is that day that often makes or breaks small businesses in the retail industry. It is small businesses that often are overlooked and the larger big box retailers get all the love. Not anymore.
All this being said, since the Friday after Thanksgiving is called “Black Friday” for the past few years, businesses like American Express and even Facebook have been promoting the Saturday after Thanksgiving as “Small Business Saturday.” Make an effor these days to support the local business. They need your support. You need them. Take this time to game plan who you will support this holiday buying season.
Small Business Saturday is November 24th. Use your American Express card to pay for your purchases that day, and get a $25 dollar Amercian Express credit. It is a great way to support local businesses. So go ahead and pick up the quality products you need to complete your home improvement projects.
