At National Pen, we know that Small Business Saturday is a special day. November 30, 2013 is a day focused on supporting the businesses that drive the majority of the US economy – yet are often overlooked by consumers who are conditioned into seeking out big chain destinations and marquee retailers. According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses (generally defined as companies that employ 500 or fewer individuals) represent 99% of all independent enterprises across the nation, and employ over 53 million people. These are companies that are owned and operated by hard-working individuals who could use a break every once in a while.
About Small Business Saturday
The Small Business Saturday holiday was first “celebrated” in 2010, as a counterpoint to the national chain Black Friday sales and Cyber-Monday specials that follow the Thanksgiving holiday. The goal was to drive domestic consumers to small businesses instead of big box stores – especially during the lucrative and competitive holiday shopping season. American Express is responsible for creating the holiday, and has promoted it through numerous ad campaigns and via several media outlets.
