Small Business Saturday is a week away. In case you don't know what that is, it was founded by American Express in 2010, as an annual shopping tradition dedicated to supporting small retail stores and shops in communities across the country. Small Business Saturday is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Small Business Saturday 2017 is November 25, and the Indie Business Network is making it easy for you to get your holiday shopping done no matter what part of the country you live in.
