    WISCONSIN RAPIDS– Small Business Saturday, otherwise known as Shop Small, is about more than shopping at small businesses. It's a cause that helps support local economies and promotes vibrant, diverse communities. This is a nationwide movement fueled by shoppers, business owners, and organizers who come together and celebrate the community because they know it matters.
    American Express created this shopping holiday in 2010 in an effort to support local shops that make our communities strong. Held the day after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday is dedicated to supporting the millions of small businesses that create jobs and boost the economy. For businesses, it is a great opportunity to gain new customers, grow sales and carry momentum into the holiday shopping season. While shopping is the main focus of this holiday, it is not a necessary component. People who want to acknowledge this day can do so by promoting it on social media or recommending your favorite small business to your friends and family.

    Join the Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce as we promote Small Business Saturday throughout our community. On November 24, 2018, embrace the day as a holiday shopping tradition. Shop at local businesses in the Heart of Wisconsin area, upload a #ShopSmallSelfie, participate in our Passport Program, and receive a chance to WIN a Chamber Gift Certificate and the GRAND Prize Basket.
