Shop Small is a nationwide movement to celebrate small businesses every day and to help communities thrive.
Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday® is the cornerstone of American Express Shop Small efforts. While Small Business Saturday is highlighted as a special day when we can show our support as a nation for small business owners and our communities, the Shop Small Movement is a year-round campaign to celebrate and support small businesses every day.
Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. This day is celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
