The Huntsville Main Street Program announced that, as a member of the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program, they will be giving away tote bags, prize wheel, and small business bingo as part of Small Business Saturday, which takes place on Nov 28. Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday celebrates the impact small businesses have on communities across the country.

The Huntsville Main Street Program will be set up outside their office at 1203 University Avenue from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. celebrating Small Business Saturday. The community is encouraged to attend and pick up their free Shop Small tote bag and spin the prize wheel to win other giveaways like t-shirts and coffee mugs. Supplies are limited, so arrive early. Shoppers will also receive a Small Business Bingo Card that has special offers and coupons for various businesses downtown. Shoppers are encouraged to visit all of the stores on the bingo card to be entered to win a Shop Small Gift Basket. 

This year’s celebration is the 11th Annual Small Business Saturday, since it started in 2010, consumers have reported spending an estimated $120 billion across all Small Business Saturdays combined. That’s $120 billion toward helping communities thrive, spent over just ten days alone.

In order to drive shoppers to Shop Small® this Nov 28, the Huntsville Main Street Program is participating in the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program to spotlight small businesses and the impact they have on communities. According to the 2019 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey, 97% of consumers who shopped on Small Business Saturday agree that small businesses are essential to their community and 95% reported the day makes them want to shop or eat at small, independently-owned businesses all year long, not just during the holiday season.
