Small Business Saturday highlights small businesses

Shop locally

According to the Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and American Express, an estimated 112 million consumers reported shopping on November 26, 2016, which represented another double-digit annual increase in Shop Small Saturday shoppers.

While Small Business Saturday originated as a counterpoint to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Adams said downtown Lawrence tends to attract shoppers on Black Friday anyway. Following the Great Recession, American Express started a campaign to help small entrepreneurs gain additional local exposure and to remind consumers to support stores, restaurants and other businesses within their own communities during the holiday season.

Growing awareness of the day coincides with a wave of new local retailers in West Columbia, many of them operated by young entrepreneurs who have made a decision to come back to the First Capitol city after going off to college or getting jobs in larger cities, Venable said.

In 2016, reports said small business owners generated an estimated $15.4 billion on Small Business Saturday.

Previous year on Small Business Saturday, an estimated 112 million Americans spent a combined $15.4 billion at independent neighborhood retailers and restaurants.

Prestifilippo said, "I just think personally that when you shop small you're supporting someone's dream and not just supporting a big company".

Howard noted that it's these small businesses that contribute to the quality of life Loudoun residents enjoy, whether it be taxes that fund schools or public safety, or in the business' direct contributions to area nonprofits, community associations and sports teams. Fredericksburg VA Main Street is creating a YouTube channel to display them, and will put a link on its Facebook page, Glave said. "This means that the money you spend locally will get filtered back into out local economy".

In partnership with local chambers of commerce and downtown organizations, businesses throughout the county will be offering special sales and promotions, extended hours, and even freebies and giveaways.

"We've got a few sales going on".

Downtown Tipp City and the Tipp City Chamber of Commerce partnered to buy $200 in gift cards for Saturday. "We have unique specialty food, gifts and items and we have good old-fashioned customer service".

Small businesses are the engine of our national economy.

Local shops invest in their communities through charitable donations (and if you have ever attended any one of the major community events in Tri-Town, that is abundantly clear), much more than the physical, big box stores or the online ones.
