This year’s celebration is the 14th Annual Small Business Saturday, marking over a decade of support for local business owners. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and communities across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day is celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in the U.S. Since it started in 2010, consumers have reported spending nearly $140 billion across all 12 Small Business Saturdays combined*.

In order to drive shoppers to Shop Small® this Nov 30, the Downtown Camas Association is participating in the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program to spotlight small businesses and the impact they have on communities. An average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at a small business in the U.S. stays in that local community.2 That means shopping small could help bring things like better schools, smoother roads, and new jobs to neighborhoods across the country.
Thank you for shopping local in Downtown Camas!
