EVO Lends its Support to Small Business Saturday

By November 23, 2015 Articles

This year, EVO is proud to support Small Business Saturday®, the day dedicated to celebrating businesses like yours. Help make this year more successful than ever by encouraging more customers to Shop Small®, not just for the things they want but also for the community they call home.

Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday serves as the ceremonial kickoff to the holiday shopping season for small businesses across the United States. In 2014, nearly 3,000 Neighborhood Champions rallied local businesses and created events and activities to drive shopping at small businesses around the country. The day was also championed by elected officials in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., including President Obama.

EVO recognizes the importance of supporting small businesses, the jobs they help create, and the culture they instill in local communities. According to the U.S. Small Businesses Administration, as of 2014, small businesses nationwide accounted for 63% of net new private-sector jobs created and represented 99.7% of all employer firms.1

Merchants and shoppers can learn more about Small Business Saturday and how to get involved by visiting ShopSmall.com and the official Small Business Saturday Facebook page.
