You have likely heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but do you know about Small Business Saturday? Each year since 2010 on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, shoppers around the country are encouraged to patronize small, local businesses.
Why? Because small businesses are vital to the economy nationwide and in Nevada. Small businesses employ almost 50% of the U.S. workforce and over 53% of Nevada workers, contributing more to job growth than their larger counterparts, according to the Small Business Administration and the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation. In addition, “shopping small” can bring together the local community and provide a positive social impact.
Many Downtown Las Vegas merchants will be offering discounts starting on Friday.
