Small Business Saturday

Happy Black Friday, everyone. Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is Small Business Saturday, THE day to shop small.

Come on down to Park Slope's Fifth Avenue! The weather is expected to be perfect (for a change) and the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID has hired a bus to help shuttle you along the avenue from 2-8 PM.

Why is Small Business Saturday so important? Here's a message from President Obama that says it all:

From the mom-and-pop storefront shops that anchor Main Street to the high-tech startups that keep America on the cutting edge, small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the cornerstones of our Nation’s promise. These businesses create two out of every three new jobs in America, helping spur economic development in communities across our country and giving millions of families and individuals the opportunity to achieve the American dream. Through events such as Small Business Saturday, we keep our local economies strong and help maintain an American economy that can compete and win in the 21st century.
