This Saturday, November 30th, is what’s considered “Small Business Saturday!” During Small Business Saturday, a group of small local businesses come together in their local community, advertise, and offer discounts to shoppers on that day. American Express began this concept in 2010, and since then it has grown, this year Philadelphia is a “neighborhood champion”, teamed up with American Express!
Small Businesses are great, you can find rare and fly items through them that you won’t find in the mainstream market. Mainstream shopping is cool and it is relevant, however it is the small businesses in our areas that are creating more jobs for locals and the driving force in our local economy.
After all the turkey and Black Friday shopping….save some room and save some money to support the local economy. This year, Small Business Saturday will be taking place in Philly at 1701 Walnut St., 8th floor, ALLMAN Building, Philadelphia, PA 19103, from 10:00 am until 5:00 p.m.. There will be at least seven businesses taking part in this significant event this year! Be sure to stop by and check it out. Other local businesses in the Philadelphia area will support small business saturday by offereing their same Black Friday discount. I know that Duke &Winston, located at 633 N. 2nd St, in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, will be offereing 30% off on Black Friday as well as Small Business Saturday. Support and shop smart and local and be apart of this historic movement!
As always…thanks for stopping by…
