Small Business Saturday 2018 throughout Cattaraugus County

Share this

Small Business Saturday, #ShopSmall or #SmallBusinessSaturday, always happens the Saturday after Thanksgiving, this year falling on the 24th.  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. 

So where should you shop in Cattaraugus County?  Here are just some NEW suggestions of the great places you can visit on Saturday.  Some may end up becoming your new favorite!
