Small Business Saturday is November 24th. This initiative is aimed at getting consumers to shop locally on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Last year Small Business Saturday resulted in more than 2.6 million "Likes" on Facebook and more than 195,000 supportive tweets. National Reports show more than 100 million shoppers turned out to support Small Business Saturday 2011. That was significantly more than the 83 million that organizers had expected.
Small Business Saturday Central Illinois (the local initiative) was a big part of that success with dozens of organizations helping promote the special day and hundreds of shoppers showing their support by shopping locally on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Mark your calendars now and let's make the 2012 effort even bigger and more successful than before. Be sure to visit and LIKE us on Facebook!!
