Background on the Movement
If you have been part of, or would like to join in, the annual Northside Small Business Saturday find more information on how to get involved on this website. Many businesses have said to us that Small Business Saturday is a huge selling day for them, partly because Northside neighbors are awesome and partly because the national trend of #shopsmall #supportlocal is in full swing after years of grass-root networks, like this Northside Shop Small coalition.
US Small Business Administration works with American Express to promote Small Business Saturday and provide free promotional tools, materials, and support to small businesses and organizers. The SBA has additional resources to advance your business financially, and they work with a variety of local groups in Pittsburgh, that can help forward your business.
American Express has been the premier sponsor of Small Business Saturday and the Shop Small® Movement since 2010. View their resources to promote your business year round under the #shopsmall movement here.
