It started with Black Friday. Now we have Small Business Saturday, Flannel Friday, Cyber Monday… so many fun things to end our Thanksgiving holiday with. On the tail end of this list we have Giving Tuesday, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving each year.
Small Business Saturday is an annual tradition that occurs the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Locals are encouraged to “shop small” and show support to the diverse businesses in their community. The holiday was created by American Express in 2010 and has seen rapid growth every year since.
