Celebrate shopping local with Small Biz Saturday

So much of this weekend and the coming weeks will be filled with shopping, as we prepare for the holidays.

Nestled in-between the mayhem of Black Friday — that now starts on Thanksgiving — and Cyber Monday is a more calm, and community-minded event: Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24.

It’s a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.

Small businesses creates local jobs and add a vibrancy to the community.

To help make the day a success, American Express is giving Cardmembers who register their Card for the Small Business Saturday offer a $25 statement credit when they spend $25 or more at locally-owned independent small businesses on Nov. 24.

In Shelton, we have vibrant small businesses throughout the city, including a few new faces and some that have been pillars in the community for years. Go explore, and put your money into the community. It beats waiting in a line at 4 a.m.
