WASHINGTON, D.C. – Most Americans know Black Friday and Cyber Monday are big days for holiday shopping. But between the two is another important part of the holiday shopping season – Small Business Saturday, a day that is dedicated to supporting the small businesses that anchor our local communities and strengthen our economy.

“From the Main Street shops to the high-tech startups, small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the cornerstones of a diverse and thriving marketplace. These businesses create two out of every three net new private sector jobs, and half of working Americans either own or work for a small business,” said Jeanne Hulit, acting administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
