In the midst of the recession in 2010, the folks at American Express created Small Business Saturday® on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses.

In 2011, the Senate unanimously passes a resolution in support of the day, and officials in all 50 states participate.

If your business is interested in participating in Martinsville’s Small Business Saturday on November 27th, please reach out to Rhonda Nesta to reserve your marketing materials. Email your request to Rhonda at by October 30th.
