The Workroom


Small Business Saturday is an initiative for holiday shoppers to shop local at brick-and-mortar stores in their communities. American Express first sponsored it in 2010 on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This puts the holiday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The initiative helps bring awareness to locally owned businesses by helping get foot traffic through the door with deals and discounts similar to its big box competitors. Small Business Saturday is important to Wichita because it drives shoppers into homegrown shops, which in turn promotes growth among independent businesses and small businesses, including those that support our travel and tourism industry.

2023 Event 

Small Business Saturday will take place November 25.
