Small Business Saturday is today—Saturday, Nov. 24. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.
American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in University City.
Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
Local participating businesses include:
- AW Healthcare
- Blueberry Hill
- Dewey's Pizza
- Headz N Threadz
