*Official* Shop Small Business (Shop Chester) Saturday!
All Day!
Location: All Throughout Chester, NJ

Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses nationwide.

Amex has just announced the date of its annual post-Thanksgiving Small Business Saturday, which will be on November 25th this year.

The first Small Business Saturday took place in 2010, and since then, the day has joined the consumer-driven craze of Black Friday and Cyber Monday as one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Instead of hitting up the big chain stores and online retailers, Amex's promotion drives business to mom-and-pop shops (including many restaurants) that help fuel local economies.

Last year, over 112 million people* came together to Shop Small® in their communities on Small Business Saturday®.

For details on enrollment for the American Express Statement Credit Cardmember Offer, please call Shop Small at 1-800-235-8916, Mon-Fri, 9am-6pm EST.

Be sure to Shop Small Business - Shop Chester!!
