Shop small on ‘Small Business Saturday’

Support local businesses and restaurants on Nov. 28

This year, on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 28, residents are urged to “Shop Small” and support local, independently-owned small businesses and restaurants.

Celebrated each year the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday is a chance for consumers to make a tremendous impact in their communities by supporting locally-owned small businesses that create jobs, boost the economy, and add vibrancy and strength to neighborhoods. Since 2011, the U.S. Small Business Administration has been a formal cosponsor of Small Business Saturday alongside American Express.

Last year, Small Business Saturday hit a record high with an estimated $19.6 billion in reported sales. Shopping small and dining local has a huge impact on the 31.7 million small businesses in the United States, where half of all U.S. workers are employed. In Pennsylvania, 1 million small businesses employ 2.5 million people. These small businesses, including veteran-owned and minority-owned small businesses, need support now more than ever as they navigate, retool and pivot from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The holiday might look a little different this year, but joy can still be shared by shopping small and supporting favorite small businesses, restaurants and their employees.
