2019 Small Business Saturday in Cattaraugus County

Share this

Small Business Saturday is almost here!  It’s easy to get caught up in the big store advertisements and deals, but this Holiday Season make sure you show your support to your community and #ShopSmall on #SmallBusinessSaturday.  Small Business Saturday always happens the Saturday after Thanksgiving, this year falling on November 30th. 

Small Business Saturday was started in 2010 as a way to encourage shoppers to patronize businesses that are small and local.  This was in counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores.  Started almost surprisingly by American Express, it wasn't until the next year in 2011 that the day became official with governors, mayors, senators and even the President voicing support for Small Business Saturday. 

In its 10th year and growing, millions have jumped on the Shop Small bandwagon and make this an annual reason to cozy up to a unique, village restaurant, or save the travelling and head around the corner to that charming, decorated shop.  You can go to the www.AmericanExpress.com to use the map to locate a Small Business in your area, or better yet, spend the day exploring your hometown, maybe even participating in one of the events that are occurring.
