Small Business Saturday History
In 2010, American Express launched Small Business Saturday on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, hoping to encourage holiday shopping at local businesses. The next year, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution in support of the day. Last year, small business owners have generated an estimated $15.4 billion dollars on the designated day.
