Says small businesses need our support now more than ever
The Small Business Administration Buffalo District office is encouraging shopping at local small businesses on Small Business Saturday.
It said, “Shopping small on Saturday, Nov. 28, supports America’s dynamic small business owners and provides critical economic backing to businesses nationwide. This year, we know that small businesses need our support now more than ever as they navigate, retool and pivot from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.”
Celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday allows consumers to make an impact in their neighborhoods by supporting local small businesses. Last year, an estimated 110 million U.S. consumers shopped small on Small Business Saturday.
“Small Business Saturday is about supporting the local businesses in our communities. Shopping small is an opportunity for Americans to support local economies and spur growth during this holiday season and the coming year," SBA Buffalo District Director Franklin J. Sciortino said.
