Small Business Saturday is this Saturday, November 28! According to the US Small Business Administration (SBA), it’s “a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.” Since its launch in 2010, the initiative has had a profound effect on small businesses nationwide.
The following infographic from SCORE — a nonprofit associated with the SBA — outlines Small Business Saturday’s impact:
As you can see, the nationwide event has caught the attention of shoppers. Small Business Saturday sales have increased by $2.9 billion since 2012. Last year, a whopping 88 million shoppers shopped small; this year, that number is only expected to grow.
