And before we share our our list, a little history on Small Business Saturday...

In an effort to support local places that make our communities strong, American Express launched Small Business Saturday on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in 2010.  In 2011, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution in support of the day. Since then small business owners have embraced this shopping day and so have consumers.  Small Business Saturday owners generated an estimated $15.4 billion dollars in 2016!
