Anybody. Anywhere. Anytime.

How can I get involved in Small Business Saturday?

You can also support Small Business Saturday by patronizing the local, independently owned small businesses in your neighborhood. That could mean anything from having dinner on your way home from the mall or reserving a part of your monthly budget to spend at a local small business.

Why should I get involved in Small Business Saturday?

The goal of Small Business Saturday is to inspire you to support the local small businesses that mean the most to you. Supporting small business is all about supporting our communities.

Small business is the heartbeat of local communities and the engine of the US economy. Over the past two decades, small businesses created 65 percent of net new jobs. In addition, for every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures.

Support Small Business Saturday and spend some time at local Blackduck businesses!
