Small Business Saturday in Davis

This November 25, let’s celebrate Small Business Saturday® in our local community – Davis, CA!

What is Small Business Saturday®? Well, Small Business Saturday® is a program, created by American Express®, that helps show the love to small businesses like ours. On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, small businesses across the United States invite members of their community to shop small and show support their local businesses.

Small Business Saturday has become a national movement, with billions of dollars spent at small businesses in your local community. In 2023, according to a survey commissioned by American Express, Small Business Saturday promotions drove an estimated $17.9 billion in sales throughout the year.

Local businesses have a lot to offer. From your favorite coffee shop, to the trendiest boutique, to the corner convenience store, all of your local businesses play a role in supporting the shopping needs of your community.

So, on Saturday, November 25, 2023, head to your downtown and support small business.
