The Woodland Village announced today that, as a member of the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program, it will host an event as part of Small Business Saturday, which takes place on Nov 30. Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday celebrates the impact small businesses have on communities across the country.
The Woodland Village will celebrate by hosting Wibbage FM 94.3 for a live broadcast from the shops with a number of giveaways. Visitors will also be given Small Business Saturday tote bags, complimentary food and drinks, and access to a free gift wrapping station. Additionally, the public can share their excitement around the incredible sales happening throughout the various unique shops by visiting the Shop Small Photo Booth.
This year’s celebration is the 10th Annual Small Business Saturday, marking a decade of support from American Express for local business owners. Since it started in 2010, consumers have reported spending an estimated $103 billion across all Small Business Saturdays combined. That’s $103 billion toward helping communities thrive, spent over just nine days alone.
In order to drive shoppers to Shop Small® this Nov 30, The Woodland Village is participating in the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program to spotlight small businesses and the impact they have on communities. An average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at a small business in the U.S. stays in that local community. That means shopping small could help bring things like better schools, smoother roads, and new jobs to neighborhoods across the country.
The Woodland Village has participated in and proudly celebrated Small Business Saturday for the past four years. We are excited to continue this tradition by welcoming the public to #ShopSmall this holiday season.
