Everyone knows what it is like to rush into your local big-box retailer on Black Friday for deals on a myriad of items or holding off until the following Monday to go crazy on Amazon or another online retailer on Cyber Monday. However, how much of that money generated from those purchases actually goes back into your local community and economy?
Let’s talk a few numbers. There are 27 million small business nationwide which employ 77 million Americans. Small businesses increase local real estate values by 50% and 3 out of every 4 dollars spent locally go back into the community.
Not so small now, huh? Small Businesses contribute to the makeup of America in such a massive way that American Express took initiative in 2010 to launch the first Small Business Saturday and give small business a platform we rightfully deserve. The day turned out to be a massive success and, to talk a few more numbers, 95 million people come out to shop and 14.3 billion was spent on that single day across the country.
After the initial launch of Small Business Saturday, the United States Senate unanimously supported a resolution to honor the day and what it brings to local economies. In these volatile political times, Small Business Saturday represents the nonpartisan, core values of the American Dream—hard work, perseverance and creativity that uplifts communities.
