Small Business Majority Launches Small Business Saturday Contest

With the days getting shorter and the temperature getting colder, you should be shopping smaller.

As the holiday season starts kicking into full gear, one day should especially stick out in the minds of small business owners: Small Business Saturday.

Since 2010, Small Business Saturday has been designated as a day encouraging people to shop at small businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Essentially, it’s the small business version of Black Friday, and this year, the big day falls on November 29.

To commemorate the occasion and attempt to make the fifth year of Small Business Saturday the biggest one yet, Small Business Majority has launched a campaign, “Confessions of a Small Biz Shopaholic,” to encourage consumers across the country to shop small.

Leading up to Small Business Saturday, we will be posting photos from people shopping at and supporting their local small businesses as a way of spotlighting small businesses and promoting this important movement during a crucial time of year for many brick-and-mortar stores.

Whether it’s a selfie of a fun shopping adventure or a cool shot of all the goodies you snatched up at your favorite local business, we can’t wait to highlight all the small business shopaholics out there to build up momentum for this year’s Small Business Saturday.

The small business owner who sends in the most creative photo will be chosen as our grand prize winner and receive a complete revamp of their social media platforms, courtesy of Small Business Majority. And the runner up will win a free annual pass to any U.S. national park.

Speaking of social media, be sure to follow along with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see our “Confessions of a Small Biz Shopaholic” campaign in action, and be sure to join in on our conversation around Small Business Saturday using the hashtag #SmallBizShopaholic.

As you get your shop on this year, make sure you go big by shopping small!
