Support Local Small Businesses: Shop San Marcos on November 28

By Christina Asai, 9:27 pm on November 24, 2020


Small Business Saturday, which takes place on November 28 this year, encourages consumers to support local businesses by shopping small. American Express launched this shopping holiday in 2010, at the height of the Great Recession, as a way of redirecting holiday shopping to local stores. A decade later, it’s observed in all 50 states, and in 2011, the Senate passed a resolution recognizing Small Business Saturday. – AMEX

Support your local community and shop San Marcos for Small Business Saturday to find those special gifts for this holiday season. On this eventful day, locally owned businesses will be offering in-store specials and discounts for shoppers to enjoy and find those perfect gifts for everyone on the list.

Small businesses need you now more than ever before. Every purchase makes an impact in your community. For every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67 cents stays in the local community.

Come celebrate Small Business Saturday in San Marcos as we boost awareness and support for our local small businesses. Enjoy shopping specials, discounts, and merchant hospitality as you “Shop Small.” Nearly every locally-owned store in the area will participate in the “Shop Small” campaign “Small Business Saturday.” To find participating small businesses near you, visit the interactive map here:

All businesses will be following State and County regulations ensuring your safe shopping and dining experience. If you would like to shop from the comfort of your home, the Chamber encourages you to visit the participating businesses websites for limited-time online opportunities.
