Tempting sales continue on Small Business Saturday in Texas – Spectrum News

TEXAS — As Texans get in their Black Friday shopping, local retailers have dropped great deals that will be available on Small Business Saturday.

First surfacing in 2010, American Express introduced Small Business Saturday to influence higher sales at small businesses during the holiday season. With the U.S. Senate’s passing of the resolution in 2011, it’s an annual November event that puts small businesses in the limelight to encourage people to extend more support to local shops in their area to boost their revenue.

“Consumers spent a record $23.3 billion shopping on Small Business Saturday in 2021,” per Investopedia.

Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday emerges to counteract the disproportionate amount of business that’s extended to larger companies, and it highlights the importance smaller businesses serve to local communities.

The Texas Craft Brewers Guild has 85-plus local craft breweries and retailers participating in a limited special promotion for Small Business Saturday. According to the Texas Craft Brewers Guild’s website, “For the fourth year, your purchase of a limited edition artist glass at a participating location supports that small business and the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, the nonprofit association advancing the Texas craft beer industry through advocacy and education.”
