Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country. Founded in 2010 by American Express, this is a day celebrated to support local on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Small businesses support our local economy, and this year more than ever, all of our small businesses need support in order to succeed, and what goes better with shopping than coffee!. Be sure to visit some of the retailers listed here and others as you shop and support locally for the holidays and the upcoming year.
