Shop Local Today! It’s ‘Small Business Saturday’

AREAWIDE — Launched by American Express in 2010, when small businesses were suffering from an economy in a recession, #Small Business Saturday was created to encourage people to #Shop Small and take more holiday shopping to all the local businesses that make our communities strong.

In an email sent Nov. 25, 2021, State Rep. Devin Carney (R-23rd) puts it best, saying, “Small Business Saturday is a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they contribute toward our communities.”

He adds, “Due to the continued impact of the pandemic on our local businesses, we know that these cornerstones of our community need our support now more than ever as many have struggled to keep their doors open during this difficult time.

Carney concludes, “Please join the Small Business Association (SBA) and organizations across the country in supporting your local small businesses by shopping small.”
