The Significance of Small Business Saturday
Small Business Saturday encompasses many enterprises, including retail stores, restaurants, salons, grocery stores, and online service-based businesses. The primary objective is to boost revenue for small businesses during the holiday shopping season. In 2022, consumers demonstrated robust support, spending approximately $17.9 billion on Small Business Saturday, as reported by American Express.
One compelling statistic underscores the impact of shopping small. For every dollar spent at a small business in the United States, 68 cents remain in the local community, highlighting the economic stimulus that supporting local businesses can provide.
