Small Business Saturday Is November 28

We all know Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, but do you know the next day is Small Business Saturday?

In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers to shop locally instead of visiting the big-box stores. The day has grown into a powerful movement, and more merchants and customers are taking part than ever before. In 2014, more than 88.5 million people shopped small on Small Business Saturday.

This year, the big day is November 28. Lakewood is your authentic city with countless small businesses that know your name and make you feel special each and every time you walk thought their doors.

Join the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce, LakewoodAlive and the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance and Uptown Lakewood as we celebrate Lakewood’s strong, independent small business community.
