Small Business Saturday

The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce is excited to partner with the Greer Station Association to bring Small Business Saturday to the Greater Greer Community! 

What is Small Business Saturday?

In 2010, American Express began the Small Business Saturday initiative to help small businesses do more business. Launched on November 27, 2010, the event has occurred annually on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Officially recognized by the U.S. Government in 2011, Small Business Saturday has grown rapidly in recent years. Last year’s event saw an estimated $14.3 billion spent at small, independent businesses.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, November 28th. We will be running a #ShopSmallSelfie competition throughout the day, encouraging shoppers to take photos with some of their favorite finds throughout the day. Shoppers that post those photos on social media with using the hashtag #ShopSmallGreer will be randomly selected to win a $50 giftcard!
