Small businesses, like those in Grinnell, make communities thrive. They support local job creation, business vitality, local expansion and economic sustainability.
In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday, to help elevate awareness for the small businesses across our communities, state and nation. This day is celebrated each year the Saturday following Thanksgiving (this Saturday). Many of our retailers will be open and offering special deals or giveaways on Small Business Saturday. I invite you all to 'shop small' and show love for all your favorite places, and encourage you to try a place you've never been.
Remember, small businesses help ensure local economies stay strong and vibrant, and when small business succeeds, we all do.
