Small Business Saturday, Holiday Promotions


For the last six years, the holiday shopping season has kicked off with “Small Business Saturday,” an initiative designed to encourage communities to shop local small businesses and keep neighborhoods thriving. And the numbers are impressive: according to recently released Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey from the National Federation of Independent Business and American Express, three out of four consumers – 77 percent – are planning to “shop small” during the 2015 holiday season.
