The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce supports Small Business Saturday on November 29 and launches this year’s Holiday Shop Local Campaign to support local businesses and restaurants.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our community and during this holiday season and always, we encourage everyone to shop and dine locally,” said Blakely Williams, President and CEO of the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Shopping local boosts our local economy and helps support all of the things that make this community a wonderful place to live and work. When you shop local, you are supporting our friends and neighbors, who in turn support many organizations and programs throughout our community.”
In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need, getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement in our community and across the nation.
