Small Business Saturday Helps Local Shops Compete with Online Sellers
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Stores everywhere are gearing up for Black Friday shoppers, but the spending doesn’t stop this weekend as local businesses get ready for small business Saturday. Small business Saturday was started by American Express. The credit card company launched the campaign in 2010 as small businesses were hurting from the recession. The tradition carries on year after year and continues to bring more holiday shopping to small businesses.
