Small Business Saturday is a relatively new initiative. It was started in 2010 by American Express and encourages consumers to shop at local, small businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Last year, according to the National Federation of Independent Businesses, consumers spent more than $5.5 billion dollars at small and independent businesses on Small Business Saturday.
