Tomorrow, November 30 is the Small Business Saturday®. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day celebrates and supports the small businesses that make communities unique.

From family-run corner stores to food trucks to online boutiques, small businesses are an important part of our lives. When they succeed, we all do. This year, we want to help them connect with more customers like you in their community.

Early this month, the College Park City Council proclaimed November 30, 2019, as Small Business Saturday in support of small businesses and merchants throughout the year. The City supports our local businesses that create jobs, boost our local economy and preserve our communities.

According to the United States Small Business Administration, there are 30.7 million small businesses in the United States that are responsible for 64.9 percent of net new jobs created from 2000 to 2018; and small businesses employ 47.3 percent of the employees in the private sector in the United States. And if you are a business employer who wants to improve employee experience, then you might want to implement performance management solutions to help you grow your business as well as manage your employees well. You may also invest in an innovative software to improve your business processes. For instance, a med spa may use a MedSpa Software to better manage several aspects of the business.

Here are some ways to participate before, during, and after the big day

Leading up to Small Business Saturday, tell the people you love about the small business and productivity. Encourage friends, family, and neighbors to do the same using #ShopSmall on social media.
