Tis’ the shopping season! This year our family will be doing plenty of shopping and like every year we like to support small businesses. Some of our favorite small businesses include local bakeries, gift shops, spas and hardware stores.
Small Business Saturday, founded by American Express in 2010 and supported by The UPS Store, is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. Celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving (this year, November 30), Small Business Saturday inspires people to shop and support small businesses, and give back to the places that have given their communities so much.
The UPS Store website’s Shop Small is a great resource for finding small businesses near you. Their website can help guide you to making great shopping choices this holiday season. If you are a small business owner you will find a number of essential resources to help support your business this holiday shopping season.
Be sure to connect with The UPS Store on Facebook and on Twitter.
