November 26th is Small Business Saturday, which is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses. This American shopping holiday was founded in 2010 to remind consumers to show appreciation to small businesses during the busy shopping weekend.
So take some time out of your busy Thanksgiving weekend and stop by a few of your favorite mom and pop shops and other small businesses to show your support.
Visit Your Favorite Local Restaurant
Take a break from all of your Thanksgiving leftovers and head out to a nice dinner at your favorite local restaurant with your family or friends.
This is an easy way to show your support, as Thanksgiving weekend is usually a pretty slow time for small restaurants. Plus, you get to take a break from cooking and the crazy shopping scene.
Find Meaningful Gifts
Finding gifts for everyone on your list can be difficult, especially if you want to make them meaningful. Shopping at small businesses, such as little shops or boutiques, will make it easier to find unique gifts for all your friends and family.
Find small businesses in your area with American Express’s shop small guides. With maps and categories, it is easy to find local businesses you can support that have registered with American Express for the Saturday.
Treat Yourself to A Delicious Treat
After a long day of shopping, it’s nice to come home and relax with a sweet treat. Delsyia Chocolatier has a large selection of chocolates to choose from, including chocolate truffles and a variety of chocolate barks. Even drinking chocolates to settle down with next to the fire.
Celebrate the start of the Christmas season with Delysia’s Winter collection chocolate truffles, which is filled with chocolate infused with flavors of mint, eggnog, and gingerbread.
Not only is this the perfect treat for your family on this busy holiday weekend, but it is also a great gift to give. Who doesn’t love the gift of chocolate?
Stop in and shop at small businesses in your area and show your support this Saturday, and don’t forget to share how you plan to show appreciation to small business owners in the comments or on Delysia’s social media pages.
We hope to see you on this Saturday when you stop by Delysia to pick up some sweet chocolaty treats!
