Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.
American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Southwest Atlanta.
More and more big chain stores are popping up in and around Tucker and that is all very well, but we also want to support the small businesses owned by our friends, family, and neighbors.
Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
This searchable map - made by American Express - shows a list of places where you can take part in Small Business Saturday, this week after Black Friday.
