Downtown Augusta Inc. is proud to announce its participation in the fifth annual Small BusinessSaturday on November 29th to support independent businesses in downtown Augusta and throughout our community. Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is a day to celebrate the small businesses that help support your neighborhood and is held every year on theSaturday after Thanksgiving.
Now in its fifth year, Small Business Saturday has been embraced as part of the holiday shopping tradition as each year shoppers, businesses and public officials come together to “Shop Small” and show their neighborhood pride.
Participating in Small Business Saturday is a way for shoppers to recognize the important contributions small businesses make to their communities. When you make a purchase at a locally owned business you are not only helping a neighbor make a living, you will also leave with a more unique purchase than you will at a big box store and get more personalized service. Below is a list of Small Business Saturday events in downtown Augusta.
