Roslindale Village gears up to mark Small Business Saturday
Most shoppers know that the day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday, a day regarded by many as the official start of the holiday retail season, but let’s not forget the next day, Small Business Saturday. American Express takes credit for establishing Small Business Saturday. On that day, shoppers are urged to “shop small” and patronize local merchants on the theory that small businesses are critical to the vitality of neighborhoods and communities. Roslindale Village is one of many neighborhoods gearing up for Small Business Saturday. SBA administrator Karen Mills is expected to be on hand.
