Small Business Saturday

What exactly is Small Business Saturday? It's the Saturday following Thanksgiving. This special day was created by American Express in 2010. American Express felt as though they needed a day where small businesses could benefit from sales since they may not usually on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, thus the creation of Small Business Saturday. A recent report conducted by Bank of America reports that 91 percent of Black Friday purchases for small businesses have either a minor or even no impact on the their business's bottom line. Last year, consumers spent $5.5 billion at small businesses alone on this day.
