Austin To Show Its Love for Small Businesses on Nov 25:

Bastrop Chamber of Commerce Kicks Off Eighth Annual Small Business Saturday®


Who doesn’t love shopping all while supporting small business!

 In 2010, American Express created Small Business Saturday in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: getting more customers during the busy holiday shopping season.

Celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year, Small Business Saturday helps shine a light on the small, independent businesses that keep our communities thriving.

This year Small Business Saturday is on November 25. Even more consumers and communities like Austin are coming together to support all types of small businesses (from retail shops and restaurants to fitness studios and record stores) on Small Business Saturday and throughout the year.
