What is Small Business Saturday?

Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday® is the cornerstone of American Express Shop Small efforts. While Small Business Saturday is highlighted as a special day when we can show our support as a nation for small business owners and our communities, the Shop Small Movement is a year-round campaign to celebrate and support small businesses every day.

The Howard County Economic Development Authority would like to encourage residents of Howard County to hit the streets on Saturday, November 26 to support the many small businesses that make our community what it is.
Additionally, we ask that you join us for the Official Grand Re-Opening of Old Ellicott City at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 26! Then stick around support the many small businesses in Historic Ellicott City that have reopened since the July 30 flood and take advantage of some Small Business Saturday Specials!
