The small business owners in Montclair Center really want your support, especially on Small Business Saturday. Montclair Center Business Improvement District helped support over 400 local merchants on Small Business Saturday last year. This year, they have partnered with American Express for the Rally Your Neighborhood Program, which included creating this video, free Shop Small bags, welcome mats, and even free parking – all to make the Shop Small experience even easier for local residents.
A nationwide event, Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010 to help small businesses get more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is November 29.
Shopping in one of Montclair’s many commercial districts supports our local businesses and our community. So shop local and shop small.
