Friday Quickie: Support Small Business Saturday 2012

support small business saturday 2012Let’s not let Black Friday get all the glory this year. Saturday, November 24th is Small Business Saturday 2012.

Celebrate by hitting up local boutiques, vintage shops, independent coffee shops, farmers markets and the like!

According to the National Federation of Independent Businesses Small Business Saturday is the most important shopping day for 36% of independent retailers. Using our wallets to show support for local companies will help these businesses grow – in turn fostering the economy. So skip out on Starbucks and Target for a day or two and throw your dollars to the little guys.

Philadelphia offers an abundance of options – like Arcadia boutique and One Shot Coffee in Northern Liberties, for example.

Readers, any Small Business Saturday 2012 spots you plan on hitting up?
