Make this Small Business Saturday Something Special
The season of shopping is upon us and choosing where you shop makes a difference. Consider shopping small at local retailers the Saturday after Thanksgiving in honor of Small Business Saturday – a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country.
Shop Small is a nationwide movement meant to celebrate small businesses on Small Business Saturday. The movement was founded by American Express in 2010 to raise awareness about the importance of small business, its effects on the local economy, and help communities thrive.
This year, Small Business Saturday falls on November 30, 2019 – the Saturday after Black Friday, and two days before Cyber Monday. On November 30th, NexTier Bank will be celebrating #shopsmall by saying thank you and helping our small business customers get discovered and grow.
NexTier Bank, your LOCAL community bank will be offering our small business customers:
- Mentions of your business on NexTier Bank’s social media sites
- Participation in an Apple iPad giveaway to help drive customers to your business
Together, we’re hoping to turn your neighborhood's Small Business Saturday into something special.
Everyone wins on Small Business Saturday and the Shop Small movement has the power to make an impact. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration 2018 Small Business Profile, there are 30.2 million small businesses in the U.S., comprising 99.9 percent of all U.S. businesses.

Want to join in Small Business Saturday?
No registration is required, and anyone can take part – consumers and small business owners alike.
As a consumer, simply choose to shop small at your local retailers and dine at local restaurants. As a small business owner, you can support Small Business Saturday by hosting an event, raising awareness to customers through marketing (i.e. flyers, posters, social media posts), offering great deals, or partnering with fellow business owners to widen your reach.
Supporting Small Business Saturday and #shopsmall means consumers get locally sourced products and services, supporting the communities they reside. It also means small businesses raise awareness of the significance to shop and eat at local businesses versus large retailers and restaurants.
