Small Business Saturday® is focused on encouraging people to shop small businesses in their community. What a great idea! Yes, almost all of us go to the 'big box stores' however the small businesses in our neighborhoods have a lot to offer and we need them so we have choices on where to shop and items to purchase.
The Small Business Saturday® event was started by American Express in 2010 and the event is always the Saturday after Thanksgiving which makes it November 30, 2013. This year there is a special highlight on independent bookstores - so get out there and do some shopping in support of small businesses in your community.

Did you know that aside from special events with book signings and presentation by authors, they also host events for older adults and seniors such as the Active Minds educational series.
