Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes and its Economic Development Committee encourage all residents to show their support for our local business community by “shopping small” on Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and encourages people across the country to support small, local businesses. This year Small Business Saturday will be celebrated on Saturday, November 26th also the same day as the Festival of Lights held on Main Street.
While Small Business Saturday is highlighted as a special day, we encourage you to support small business owners and our communities year-round. Small businesses make up over 99% of the nation’s businesses and are the true drivers of the nation’s economy. From the mom and pop shops to the family-owned restaurants that bring our neighborhoods to life, be sure to show your support and celebrate small businesses and all they do for our communities.
During your shopping spree, make sure to use #iheartmiamilakes #shopsmall on all social media outlets to show your pride!
