Small Business Saturday November 26, 2016
Everyone is ‘Showing Their Love’ for small businesses!
Small Business Saturday (SBS) was founded in 2010 in an effort to bring awareness and consumer dollars to small businesses during one of the busiest shopping season of the year. According to a SBS Consumer Insights Survey, consumers spent $16.2 billion in 2015 (up 14% from in 2014) “shopping small” at independently owned small businesses on this day! It is a day that communities come together to celebrate and show support of their local businesses.
Surprisingly, big businesses are supporting the small businesses! Forbes mentions that many big businesses understand that their customers are all the small businesses, from vendors to technology partners. There is a steady increase in their support and are proud to ‘show their love’ for the small businesses from social media to in-store specials and more!
