The New Castle County Chamber of Commerce is helping to kick off the Holiday Season by supporting ‘Small Business Saturday’ on November 28th.
Shoppers around the nation have been awakening to the importance of showing support to local small businesses in their community. Small Business Saturday shopping promotions spotlight the value that local retailers and restaurants bring to the community.
The first Shop Small Business Saturday took place back in 2010 as an encouragement to people across American to support their local small businesses. The following year, the US Senate officially recognized the day and in 2012 Small Businesses owned the day as 73.9 million people went out to shop at small businesses. Last year showed a record 88 million spent 14.3 billion at small independent businesses. Not too shabby!
The New Castle County Chamber of Commerce will promote 22 Small Businesses that have put together special offers for Small Business Saturday. One of those businesses, Premier Wine & Spirits will be offering $10 OFF any wine purchase of $50 or more, valid on 750 ml & 1.5 liter bottles. Go to the NCCCC website for a full listing of the participating Chamber member’s special offers, which will be good for the next few weeks. So make that click and support your local businesses this holiday season!
