Small Business Saturday

November 30, 2019

Support this year’s Small Business Saturday® celebration, which takes place on Saturday, November 30! Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting the independent businesses that makes our Lincoln Park community unique, vibrant, and provides invaluable contributions to our local economy. 

Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday serves as the ceremonial kickoff to the holiday shopping season for small and local businesses across the United States. In 2018, U.S. shoppers reported spending an estimated $17.8 billion at independent retailers and restaurants on the day, according to the 2018 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey. In addition, the Small Business Economic Impact Study from American Express found that an average two-thirds of every dollar spent at small businesses in the U.S. stays in the local community, meaning a consumer’s local impact during the holiday shopping season can be significant. Small Business Saturday celebrates the diversity of small businesses across the U.S. and recognizes the importance of supporting small businesses, the jobs they help create, and the culture they foster in local communities. 

Get out in the neighborhood and shop local this holiday season; support independent businesses in the Lincoln Park community on Saturday, November 30.
