Thanksgiving has passed, the turkey and stuffing and pies are either all gone or in the fridge waiting for the next few meals, and everyone’s attention has turned to those two other days that signal the start of the frantic madness that is the Holiday Shopping Season: Black Friday (TODAY!) and Cyber Monday. But sandwiched between those two hectic days there’s another, less well-known day that deserves just as much attention as its big brothers. Perhaps more.
Tomorrow, November 26th, is Small Business Saturday, a day to celebrate and support the local small businesses that boost the economy and invigorate neighborhoods across the country. Last year, over 100 million people came together to show local businesses how important they are to their communities, and this year should be even bigger.
