This is Marty Carpenter in for Lane Beattie of the Salt Lake Chamber with your Utah Business Report.
I expect a lot of you are spending today shopping at all the big stores to get the best deals for Black Friday. But tomorrow will be your time to Shop Small—small business, that is.
Small Business Saturday is an American Express sponsored day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the county.
Last year, more than 5-point-5 billion dollars were spent as Americans came together to Shop Small in their communities on Small Business Saturday.
Small businesses are a great resource for state economies. The creation and prosperity of small local businesses is a great way to keep our own economy strong and growing.
For those small business owners out there, you can learn how to be a part of Small Business Saturday by downloading free marketing materials at SmallBusinessSaturday.com.
So get out there and encourage your friends and family to Shop Small tomorrow for Small Business Saturday… you're not only helping those businesses, but you're helping our state. Happy holidays.
