Tuesday, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a proclamation formally declaring November 25 as Small Business Saturday in Alabama. Small Business Saturday is designed to celebrate and support small businesses and the impact it has on Alabama communities. The Friday after Thanksgiving, historically, is the largest shopping day of the year, but most of that business goes to big box stores.
“Small Business Saturday is a wonderful opportunity for Alabamians to support local businesses on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving,” Ivey said. “Small businesses have long been recognized as the economic engine for job growth, economic stability and preserving neighborhoods across Alabama and the nation.”
