Small Business Saturday (SBS) feels as if it has been apart of the Black Friday weekend trio of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday all along. SBS has only been around for the last six years though. And it wasn’t even started by a small business, it began as a PR and Marketing campaign by American Express in 2010.
In that six year period, Small Business Saturday has become part of “the norm” during the Thanksgiving shopping season. With that being said, avoid the chains and more mainstream brands this Saturday and hit up a local shop! Chances are you probably know a business owner or two. Hit up their business and say hi!
Here are a few Black Friday/Small Business Saturday deals:
