First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday. Now, there’s the 2nd annual Small Business Saturday, the day people support small businesses. Pledge to Shop Small on Nov 26th. If millions of Americans shop small, it will be huge.
Instead of trying to compete with large national chains, many locally owned businesses are promoting their stores the day AFTER Black Friday – Small Business Saturday.
And American Express is helping out by offering a “one-time $25 statement credit when you register an eligible American Express® Card and use that Card for a purchase of $25 or more at a small business on November 26th.” Find more information at facebook.com/smallbusinesssaturday. Great deal if you have an American Express card!
Many of the merchants of Carytown are participating with Black Saturday, and there will also be free horse-drawn carriage rides all through Carytown on Saturday from 12pm – 5pm.
