Celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday encourages consumers to impact their local economies by supporting a small business and acknowledge those who create two of every three jobs, deliver essential goods and services across the nation 365 days a year, and enrich our communities. Last year, more than 100 million nationwide consumers shopped small on Small Business Saturday. For more information, visit
