After your Thanksgiving feast, the obligatory Black Friday shopping begins. You may already have your map all planned out, your budget set in place and your elbows sharpened. And yet,  there remains the underdog during this holiday shopping season. How can you help? How can you shop, stimulate the economy and complete your Christmas shopping?

 

Annually celebrated the Saturday after Thanksgiving and the day after the notorious day of spending, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday promotes Shop Small, a movement encouraging people to shop at small businesses―people like you. At this year’s Small Business Saturday on November 28, 2015, join others in supporting a smaller businesses.

 

Supporting small businesses means more than going out and getting a head start on Christmas shopping. Locally owned businesses and shops depend on the support of their community in order to make a living. People start their business for a chance to live their dream and pursue the career they love.

 

Over 28 million small businesses in the Unites States and over 22 million self-employed work long and hard hours to support themselves and make their businesses successful. But, only half of new business start-ups survive five years, and a quarter of businesses stay open for 15 years or more. Your support allows small business owners to pay their mortgage, sign their daughter up for dance class, put food on the table and so much more.

 

This year, give back to small businesses in downtown Las Vegas, a hub for growing companies to bloom and thrive, thanks to the Downtown Project. During your stay in downtown Las Vegas stop by the Container Park, an open air shopping mall chock full of small businesses that need your support!

 

This year, make it a goal to give back to those special and unique coffee shops, eateries, jewelry stores, clothing boutiques and more that strive to compete with the big guys in the business world.
