SOUTH BUFFALO - From unique Celtic jewelry and Belleek fine china from Tara’s Gift Shoppe, to South Buffalo apparel at McKay’s Clothing, Buffalo bred art at Buffalo Adore and Red Sox items to celebrate the recent World Series victory at Burke’s Sports; all this and more is within minutes of your door when you shop locally in South Buffalo.
Saturday, Nov. 30 is “Small Business Saturday” and is the perfect time to travel up and down the streets of South Buffalo to start pegging away at your holiday shopping list.
What Black Friday is to the malls, and Cyber Monday is to online shopping, Small Business Saturday is to local merchants in our neighborhoods, with a positive catch; profits generated by Small Business Saturday stay directly in our communities.
Small Business Saturday was initiated by the American Express Company and is promoted by the Small Business Administration of America as a way to recognize small businesses and all they do for the local community. Shopping local has a direct trickling effect as the funds spent locally stay in your community in ways of wages to the small business employees, renovation to their establishments, and other avenues of the “keep it local” mindset.
While many small businesses will register for this special shopping day to receive advertising benefits from American Express, the premise of Small Business Saturday is to shop any of the small businesses in your area. Now is a great time, as the holidays approach, to revisit those storefronts in your neighborhood that you haven’t recently visited to find out what’s new and available.
Stores that are participating in the discounts for Small Business Saturday can be found at www.shopsmallneighborhoods.americanexpress.com. American Express holders can also register their cards and receive $10 off their Small Business Saturday purchase.
