Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses their community thrives on.
This year, your Manassas Park and Manassas Patch sites are joining up to put together a list of local Small Business Saturday deals. We know there are dozens of locally-owned small businesses participating in the area — you can look up which local businesses are participating here.
If you are a small business owner, leave your deal in the comments section below, and it will be added to the list.
American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in.
Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
