Covid-19 has caused a whirlwind of changes for everyone this year, especially to small business owners. Small businesses everywhere were hit hard with financial difficulties with the shutdown. While we’ve remained resilient during these times, we still need your support now more than ever.
Small Business Saturday is right around the corner on November 28th this year. This is such an important day for everyone to come together and support local businesses who have been impacted by the virus.
Shop Small Saturday was started in 2010 by American Express during the recession to help encourage local shopping to help communities thrive during the tough times. The date is always the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage local shopping for the holiday season.
Because the first Shop Small Saturday was such a success, the following year in 2011, the Senate unanimously passed a resolution in support of the day. All 50 states participated and even got a shout out from the then President.
Some statistics from 2019 show that for the 10th Annual Small Business Saturday, an estimated $19.6 billion in spending was recorded, a record high! This goes to show that when shoppers come together to support local businesses, it really makes a difference!
You might not realize it, but every time you grab a coffee from your locally-owned café or buy handmade art from a local shop, it helps business owners and the community it serves thrive. In fact, American Express stated that for every dollar spent at a local business in the United States, 67 cents stays within the local community. That’s awesome!
This November 28th, support the Clay Coyote! We have handmade gifts for everyone on your list. Our new “hot” item just in time for holiday gifting is the Flameware Pizza Stone.
