Established in 2010 by American Express, Small Business Saturday is a day for community members to show their support for local small businesses. The event occurs on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, making this year's Small Business Saturday on November 28th, 2015. Consumers begin the holiday shopping season on the Friday after Thanksgiving, known as "Black Friday," in which many "big-box" and chain stores offer very low prices on a range of goods. During the frenzy, people may forget that their local businesses are fighting to compete with these prices and attract enough business to stay afloat.
Join your neighbors this year by showing your moral and economic support for small businesses in College Park!
Although the event is still weeks away, College Park businesses need to begin planning for this important event now. Small Business Saturday will be here before we know it, so let's begin brainstorming ideas to make this year's event one to revive interest and support for locally-owned small businesses. Share your ideas with us on Facebook.
Stay tuned for updates about this exciting event that is sure to energize the entire College Park neighborhood!
