The holidays are fast approaching, and ‘tis the season of giving. Buying presents for friends and family can be challenging for many reasons. Maybe they already have a lot and don’t have any ideas for what else they might want or need, or maybe they’re picky and it can be difficult to shop for them.

Whatever the reason, you might be brainstorming ideas for more unique presents this year, and we’ve got the perfect solution.

Small Business Saturday.

Small businesses are great for local economies, but more than that, they’re important members of the local community. Small businesses are built on delivering a wonderful, personalized experience, and small business owners pride themselves on getting to know their customers.

What is Small Business Saturday?

This holiday, which falls on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (the day after Black Friday), was launched in 2010 by American Express because “small businesses are at the core of every successful neighborhood.” This holiday encourages people to “shop small”, and visit local brick-and-mortar stores to do some holiday shopping.

3 Reasons to Shop Small Business Saturday

Great Customer Service

When you shop small business Saturday at a local store, you’ll be greeted and welcomed in. You’re taken care of while you shop, and you’ll make your purchases while having a friendly chat with the cashier. Small businesses believe in providing great customer service and taking that extra step to ensure total happiness for everyone who visits.

Avoid Black Friday

If the idea of fighting your way around big box stores on Black Friday sounds like a nightmare, then Small Business Saturday is the antidote you need. Instead of arm wrestling for the latest “it” toy or gift, take your time perusing more unique, and often customizable, items.

Give Back

When you shop small, you directly support a local business, or several, which has a direct impact on the local economy. Local businesses provide people in your community with jobs, and your support means that these businesses can keep operating and growing. Not only can you find awesome gifts for loved ones on Small Business Saturday, but you also give the business itself the gift of your patronage.
