Shop Locally in Tewksbury on Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24
Start your holiday shopping at locally owned stores during Small Business Saturday.
Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.
American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Tewksbury.
"When you shop local, everybody wins. Not only does it drive our local economy, it also creates jobs and a sense of community," said Danielle McFadden, president and CEO of the Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce. "There's nothing like walking into a local restaurant or retailer and talking with the owner. They truly appreciate the support and will go above and beyond for their customers.
"This holiday season, the Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce encourages everyone to think, shop and eat local. Small Business Saturday is a good start, but we need to support these businesses year round."
Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
