Small Business Saturday falls after Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
It is a day for everyone — from the business owners who create jobs to the customers who buy locally — to support small businesses that invigorate the economy and keep communities thriving.
American Express initiated Small Business Saturday in 2010 to help small businesses get more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year.
Last year, over 100 million people came out to shop at independently-owned small businesses on Small Business Saturday.
