Small Business Saturday is sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyper Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores, respectively. Small Business Saturday encourages shoppers to patronize mom-and-pop businesses at the start of the holiday season.

The U.S. Small Business Association calls it “a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.”
