Black Friday is such a wonderful time of the year. Big sales, crowded malls, pushing and shoving and annoyed sales associates, who wouldn’t want that?
Well, for the people who aren’t huge fans of the craziness on Black Friday (or just need an extra day to get everything for everyone on their holiday shopping list), American Express has teamed up with small businesses for what they're calling, “Small Business Saturday.”
Small Business Saturday on Nov. 26 comes after Black Friday and before Cyber Monday to support small businesses in any town where locally-owned businesses accept American Express.
Chestnut Hill as well as many other neighborhood shopping areas around the Philadelphia region will support this day with the use of an American Express card where a registered user can get $25 off a purchase that is $25 or more only to be used in a small business.
Some of the participating stores in Chestnut Hill that accept American Express are Artisans on the Avenue, Bredenbeck's, Fabrics on the Hill, O'doodles and many more.
There's also events going on in Manayunk on Main Street from Green Strret to Shurs Lane - this includes most side streets.
Small Business Saturday in Manayunk will take place from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Beat the rush on Black Friday and support your local businesses for Small Business Saturday.
