That’s the founding belief behind American Express’ Shop Small Movement, now a nationwide holiday tradition that encourages people to support their local small businesses. Since its inception in 2010, the Shop Small Movement has been making an impact in communities as people shop at their neighborhood retailers and become loyal customers.
This year, the Shop Small Movement will be celebrated on November 29, the day after Thanksgiving. Small Business Saturday, as it is known, is the opportunity for people to go out and do their holiday shopping and support the local businesses they love. In Downtown Boulder and throughout Boulder County, many businesses offering a diversity of products are celebrating Small Business Saturday or participating in a Winter Sidewalk Sale. Customers will experience special in-store events and savings – as if they needed more incentive to support their favorite hometown store.
Marketing Java is proud to be a Neighborhood Champion for Small Business Saturday. We appreciate the efforts of local area businesses in providing us, the customers, with the things we need during the holidays. We hope to see you out shopping small on Small Business Saturday, and we have goodies to share with small businesses in the Boulder/Louisville/Lafayette area. If you’re one that relies on foot traffic and you’d like a doormat or shopping bags for your place, get in touch with us and let us know!
