WASHINGTON – The Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Maria Contreras-Sweet, is launching into a week of encouraging Americans across the country to shop small on November 29th as part of Small Business Saturday, a day that is dedicated to supporting the small businesses that anchor our local communities and strengthen our economy.

The weekend after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping weekend of the year, and so many small businesses rely on the holiday shopping period to ensure a successful year on the books. As a member of President Obama’s Cabinet, the SBA Administrator is reminding American’s to not only shop small on Small Business Saturday, but start with their Thanksgiving dinner items at local grocers, shop small at their main street business, and dine small at their neighborhood restaurants.
