I mean really…do we need to say more?
When you #ShopSmall, you make a big impact on us and our whole community. And that’s something worth celebrating. 🙂 See you this Saturday, November 30th for the 10th #SmallBizSat #BackedByAmex
“In fact, for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community. So when you #ShopSmall on Small Business Saturday—and all year long—it can help add up to a big impact.”
