It is that time of year again, folks! As we round the Thanksgiving corner and break into one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year, don’t let Black Friday and Cyber Monday distract you from the opportunity to support our country’s small businesses on Small Business Saturday, observed on Saturday, November 30th this year.
What is Small Business Saturday? Simply put, it is a day to support small businesses and communities throughout the country. The idea is that, as consumers, we play a key role in facilitating the success of our nation’s small businesses.
Small Business Saturday was the brainchild of the credit card giant American Express, who set out to promote this idea to help our communities thrive and stay vibrant. According to their website, since it started in 2010, consumers have reported spending an estimated $103 billion across all Small Business Saturdays combined.
Sabre88 is proud to be a small business supporter. Sabre88 believes that in order to be a member of a sustainable community both locally and globally it is important to participate in and contribute to ongoing activities within that community.
As a small business, we at Sabre88 are tremendously thankful for the support of our customers and clients. The successes and achievements we have made over the last ten years would not have been possible without said support.
Pass on the support this Saturday, as it goes beyond the material goods or services purchased. Whether dining at a local café or finding a new niche clothing shop in town, any contribution will be felt by the families and communities in which those small businesses reside. Join the movement and Shop Small!
