Small Business Saturday was founded in 2010 by American Express to help business owners with their most pressing need - getting more customers. Six years later, shoppers across the nation continue to rally in support of small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
American Express Small Business Neighborhood Champion's "The Branding Alliance" will be hosting a Small Business Showcase from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Small Business Saturday, November 25th at 2101 N State Road 7 in Hollywood. The goal of the showcase is to promote local businesses in Hollywood. For more information on the Small Business Showcase, please call Tina Acevedo at 954.294.2283.
