Another Reason to Shop Small® on Small Business Saturday®: Approximately 67 Cents of Every Dollar Spent at a Small Business Remains in the Local Community
On average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at small businesses in the U.S. stays in the local community, consumers’ local impact during the important holiday shopping season could be significant. Further, every dollar spent at small businesses creates an additional 50 cents in local business activity as a result of employee spending and businesses purchasing local goods and services, according to the Small Business Economic Impact Study from American Express (NYSE: AXP).
The first-ever Small Business Saturday took place on Nov 27, 2010. It encouraged people across the country to support small, local businesses. In 2011, the United States Senate unanimously passed a resolution of support for Small Business Saturday. Over $14.3 billion has been spent at independent small businesses on Small Business Saturday.
