Shop Small, Shop Smart

Posted on Nov 30, 2013

The gift giving season is upon us, and while some will battle it out for the perfect gift from big box stores, others wait. After Black Friday and before Cyber Monday is a shopping day you may not know about, this day is called Small Business Saturday. In 2010 American Express launched Small Business Saturday (SBS) as a way for shoppers to support their local businesses, and in the years since SBS has only grown. Last year 47% of small business participated in the shopping holiday, and that number is only expected to grow. Shoppers can get Black Friday-style deals at local shops and business owners will gain new customers as a result of SBS.

 

So this year stop by small businesses in your area and use today to help stimulate your local economy. And don't forget! Unhinged is offering their buy one item get the second item 50% off all weekend. So this holiday season get your loved ones uniquely crafted gifts from your favorite small businesses and who knows, you may just find a shoppers dream right in your own neighborhood.
