Post image for Small Business Saturday coming to Menlo Park on Nov. 24

It’s usually the big shopping day after Thanksgiving that gets all the publicity, but there is also Small Business Saturday on November 24, 2018!

To help support this initiative and make the term Small Business Saturday as popular as Black Friday, the City of Menlo Park is asking you to join millions of Americans to “shop small” at your favorite local stores and help fuel the Menlo Park economy.

This year marks the ninth Small Business Saturday. Last year on Small Business Saturday, Americans spent a combined $15.4 billion at independent neighborhood retailers and restaurants.
