The Boston Local Development Corporation invites you to Shop Local for Small Business Saturday

This Saturday, November 24, will be celebrated across the nation as Small Business Saturday. On this day, holiday shoppers are encouraged to patronize their local Boston businesses. These small businesses are key to keeping your community vibrant and fun. Show them your appreciation this Saturday, and throughout the holiday season!

Small Business Saturday is an event special to Bostonians in particular. When it was first observed in 2010, the City of Boston and the Roslindale Village Main Streets program were among the original sponsors. The event has now gone nationwide and is a registered trademark of American Express.
