Small businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy. The owners and employees not only provide services, but they engage in acts of volunteerism and leadership all across our community. Henry County is a better place to live because of them, and they deserve our thanks and recognition for all their important contributions. Looking for a great way to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for our community? Small Business Saturday is almost here!
Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and U.S. consumers have reported spending an estimated $85 billion at independent retailers and restaurants on Small Business Saturdays since 2010.
