Locals urged to "Shop Small" on Small Business Saturday

Updated:

The Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce is encouraging locals to "Shop Small" on Small Business Saturday.

Shoppers can visit locally owned retailers this Saturday, November 30, to show their commitment to small businesses in Acadiana. The Chamber urges locals to spread the word to help make Small Business Saturday successful in the region.

Small Business Saturday or "Shop Small" is an initiative created by American Express in 2010 to boost exposure for locally owned merchants during the busiest holiday shopping time of the year, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This campaign is to help generate support for locally owned businesses in communities and to keep them flourishing.

"Most of our membership is made up of small businesses, and we want to make Small Business Saturday a great start to their holiday season," said Jason El Koubi, President & CEO.
