Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses nationwide. Last year, over 100 million people came together to shop small in their communities on Small Business Saturday, according to a 2012 Small Business Saturday Consumer Survey by Echo Research.
For the past three years, Half Moon Bay's Main Street merchants have been participating in the day that American Express designated in 2010 as Small Business Saturday.
Small Business Saturday is a designated day to get out there and support Half Moon Bay’s merchants by shopping local. There are many well-documented benefits to the community by choosing local, independently owned businesses like investing in your community, reducing environmental impact, keeping our community unique, putting your taxes to good use, and encouraging local prosperity.
And there are deals to be had. P. Cottontail, Toque Blanche, Inkspell Books, Tokenz, Gourmet Appliance, Crow's Nest and more are participating in Small Business Saturday with sales, raffles and discounted items.
Also, American Express card members get rewarded for shopping small on Small Business Saturday: a $10 credit when you spend $10 or more at a participating small business, using your registered American Express card. Enroll your American Express card here.
