What is Small Business Saturday?


Small Business Saturday is an initiative launched by American Express in 2010 to encourage shoppers to support local businesses. Small Business Saturday takes place on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving. In 2022, businesses across Connecticut and the US will be celebrating the shopping holiday on November 26th. 


The holiday is about building vibrant communities and bringing holiday business to small shops. Celebrating Small Business Saturday by visiting your favorite local spots helps keep small businesses in business. Celebrate our community by shopping local in Westport.
