Shop Locally in Hingham on Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24
Start your holiday shopping at locally owned stores during Small Business Saturday.
Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.
American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Hingham.
"This Saturday, be sure to make a stop Downtown Hingham," said Hingham Downtown Association Director Michael Stack. "Say hello to Nanette at La Petite Mason, grab a burger from Ed at The Snug, pick up a special gift from Suzanne at Suzanne’s, or some jewelry from Michael & Lorraine at The Whitney Gordon’s Jewelers. Finally, you can finish the day with an ice cream from Pat at Brighams or Krissy at Nona’s Homemade."
Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
The top place to shop on this day is Downtown Hingham.
