Small Business Saturday is an American shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving during one of the busiest shopping periods of the year. First celebrated on in 2010, it is sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big-box stores and e-commerce stores respectively. By contrast, Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.
Your Catonsville Chamber of Commerce wants to encourage our members and the community to patronize our local Catonsville merchants on Saturday, November 24. Small Business Saturday is all about celebrating the small business owner, the engine that keeps our economy going, and all they do for their communities. Customers are also encouraged to help promote their favorite businesses through Facebook and Twitter.
In Catonsville, we also hold our annual Tree Lighting Ceremony beginning at 6:30 pm on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, so plan to spend your entire day in Catonsville shopping, celebrating and helping to keep our community The PLACE to live, work, shop, and play!
