Shop Local on Small Business Saturday (and Beyond)

Posted on November 20th, 2012 by Laura Fonda

Saturday, November 24 is Small Business Saturday, a day that celebrates shopping small. Sponsored by American Express, Small Business Saturday is an opportunity for you to show support for our local small businesses – and you don’t need an American Express Card to do so.

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday receiving so much attention, small businesses often get left out in the rush of big-box deals, lines, and crowds. So, don’t forget our local Queen Anne small business, they’re what keeps the character of Queen Anne alive. Shop locally this holiday season, and visit our merchants on Saturday, and throughout the year!
