Small Business Saturday®, a day dedicated to supporting small businesses around the country that create jobs and boost the economy, is November 30, 2013. Small Business Saturday® was created in 2010 in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: more customers. Small businesses have generated 64 percent of net new jobs over the past 15 years and employ over half of all private sector employees. First there was Black Friday, and then Cyber Monday, and now Small Business Saturday® will help drive shoppers to America’s job creators.
My team is taking the pledge to shop small and we hope that you too, will be playing your part in making this day a great success for small businesses.
