Small Business Saturday – November 27, 2021
This Saturday, November 27th is Small Business Saturday! This annual event was originally created by American Express in 2010 in response to the recession. It is widely reported that the movement generates between $13 and $20 billion dollars in small business revenues on this one Saturday alone. This boost in sales so close to the holidays is even more important in a COVID-19 world where shop owners may have seen a decrease in business.
Small businesses contribute to local economies by bringing growth and innovation to the community in which the business is established. They also, help stimulate economic growth by providing employment opportunities to people who may not be employable by larger corporations.
These businesses are run by members of our own community and it is important to lift each other up. EDC Warren County encourages everyone to participate in Small Business Saturday this November 27th.
