Shop Locally on Small Business Saturday

Topics: Small Business

Support Your Local Small Business 

Small retail business owners want consumers to shop “small” on Saturday, November 26. This year, as inflation, labor shortages and supply chain issues continue to impact the economy, small businesses across the country need our support more than ever.

The brainchild of American Express, Small Business Saturday (SBS) is a day to celebrate entrepreneurs everywhere, including the small businesses that line Main Street across America. SBS is celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in the U.S.

Hear from one of AmTrust’s small business insured about their business, its impact on their communities, and why you should support local businesses:


“This Small Business Saturday, you should make a point of getting out and visiting your local community businesses. If you would imagine your local community without these shops, I think you would be really sad to see that those places were gone, and the jobs and tax revenue that goes along with it. Make a point of helping them to continue to be there because they can’t be there without you.”-

Introduced in 2010 as a day to support small businesses, SBS has a big impact on the communities these businesses call home. Here are a few statistics about the Small Business Saturday movement:
