Give Local a Shot This Small Business Saturday

Thanksgiving is approaching, and that means the beginning of the holiday season​​—and holiday shopping.

You are already planning to cross a few names off your gift list with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, but what about Small Business Saturday?

celito is the premier source for fiber internet in Raleigh, and as a local business, we understand the importance of shopping small. Supporting small businesses allows our communities to thrive.

From providing internet solutions to local businesses to our philanthropy, celito serves Raleigh with integrity, innovation, and skill.

This Small Business Saturday, celito is shining a light on the ways that we can support our Raleigh community members. Especially as our economy continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, small businesses need our support now more than ever.

What Is Small Business Saturday?

The first Small Business Saturday was observed on November 27th, 2010. American Express partnered with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and local Massachusetts organizations to create the holiday.

To spread the word, American Express bought social media ad space and donated it to their small merchant account holders. #smallbusinesssaturday quickly took off, and the movement is still growing.

Small Business Saturday always occurs on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, and its goal is to shift focus from the big box retailers who dominate the holiday shopping season to small, local businesses.

Many small businesses take advantage of the attention to providing special Small Business Saturday deals, just like Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Why Is Small Business Saturday Important?

Small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities. They provide jobs, as well as top-notch services. Because they are often run by local residents, small businesses understand your community’s unique needs in a way that larger corporations just can’t.

In 2021, Small Business Saturday is more important than ever. Small businesses suffered more than their corporate counterparts during the COVID-19 pandemic, with many closing. Even those that survive are often doing so on razor-thin margins, and every sale makes a difference.

You can participate in Small Business Saturday in your community by:

  • Purchasing holiday gifts from local retailers
  • Switching from large coffee chains to local cafés
  • Ordering out or dining in at local restaurants
  • Posting on social media with #smallbusinesssaturday 
  • Supporting small businesses all over the world through sites like Etsy, Storenvy, and Uncommon Goods
