Details About Shop Small Saturday
Shop Small Mount Vernon and Lisbon is part of the national Small Business Saturday campaign started by American Express.
“Small businesses, like small Iowa towns, are the back-bone of our nation and economy,” said Catherine Kennedy, Chair of the Mount Vernon project. “Support for small businesses and small towns is support for the growth of our families, our friends, and our country.”
American Express founded Small Business Saturday in 2010. This event encourages shoppers to support small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This single day is now a powerful national movement because more businesses and shoppers are participating each year.
