Small Business Saturday

November 26th is Small Business Saturday.  It's a day dedicated to supporting small businesses throughout our region. The Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce is working with SEVERAL regional communities, organizations and small businesses to make Small Business Saturday a huge success.  First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday.  Now there’s Small Business Saturday, the day we celebrate the “Shop Small” movement.  It’s a day dedicated to supporting small businesses, the heartbeat of our communities.  Join us and shop small business all throughout the region on November 26th. 

We have launched the Small Business Saturday Central Illinois Facebook Page.  Find it, Like it and then start sharing your stories about small business and Central Illinois.  It’s easy to get involved!  Your business can post special offers for shoppers, communities can share stories about their small businesses and business owners will have access to innovative marketing tools and social media resources to help them connect with customers. 

Visit the national movement at and check out their Facebook page for all kinds of great information at Small Business Saturday.  Please “like” these pages and contribute by sharing your stories and telling all of your friends about Small Business Saturday Central Illinois.
