New Milford Businesses Take Part in 'Small Business Saturday'

Start your holiday shopping at locally owned stores during Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24.

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. 

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.

You can “like” Small Business Saturday on Facebook by visiting www.facebook.com/shopsmall.

Everyone has locally owned businesses in their community, and shopping on Small Business Saturday is the perfect way to give back to the businesses you know and love in your community.

So, for example, if a multibilliondollar company puts together a national business, and claims it is "hyperlocal" and tries to represent itself as a local small business, and then tries to come out in favor of "Small Business Saturday", that would be kind of hypocritical, wouldn't you agree?
