Every year, we look forward to Thanksgiving and spending time with friends and family. Many of you may venture out to shop on Black Friday, but what about supporting local businesses during Small Business Saturday?
Every year, this event takes place the day after Black Friday – this year it will occur on Saturday, November 28. The day was created by American Express to encourage consumers to shop and brick and mortar businesses that are small and local. By shopping on Small Business Saturday, you’re not only giving back to the small businesses in your neighborhood – you’re supporting the local economy as a whole. Plus, it’s another reason to shop – that’s a bonus!
If you need more reasons to get out and shop local on Small Business Saturday, Forbes just posted an article about why it matters. Come and see us at the Home Energy Store on November 28 – you can even save 20% store-wide on unique gifts for everyone on your list. See you Saturday!
