You've heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the two biggest shopping days of the year, but have you heard of ‘Small Business Saturday'?
"A new campaign is underway to encourage consumers to shop at small businesses on Saturday, Nov. 24," said BBB President Tom Bartholomy. "Small businesses have great deals too, but usually do not have the advertising dollars to spend promoting their sales like the major retail chain stores do."
Small businesses also are less crowded than bigger stores and may offer specialty items or one-of-a-kind gifts that you can't find in the larger stores.
So, during this weekend's retail shopping frenzy, the BBB encourages you to show your favorite small businesses some love by ‘shopping small' on ‘Small Business Saturday'.
For more information, please visit BBB or call (704) 927-8617 or toll-free in N.C. and S.C. at 1-877-317-7236.
