Small Business Saturday – Nov. 25 in downtown Athens

MORE ABOUT SHOP SMALL: In 2010, small businesses are hurting from an economy in recession. To support these local places that make our communities strong, American Express launched Small Business Saturday on the Saturday after Thanksgiving — hoping to help bring more holiday shopping to small businesses. Small business owners embrace the day, and the impact is felt on every corner. Through their own promotional efforts and customer outreach, small business owners generate an estimated $15.4 billion dollars on Small Business Saturday in 2016.
