Small Business Saturday is an annual tradition the day after Black Friday meant to celebrate, support, and boost awareness of local, independently-owned businesses. Since its start in 2010, the unofficial shopping holiday has seen a long-term trend in growth, growing sales from 5.5 billion in 2010, to 17.8 billion in 2018. Piggybacking off the Black Friday shopping fever, Small Business Saturday stands as a reminder that local communities could benefit from the holiday spending frenzy too—not just the big box stores.
At Beyond, we’re committed to supporting local, independently-owned businesses. From our suite of products that help businesses thrive, to our team of community advocates helping business operations run smoothly, we know that backing our community businesses is important. We’ll be shopping local on November 30—will you?
