Smart Shopper’s Guide To Small Business Saturday in Rhode Island

Saturday, November 24, 2012

 

Get out, have fun, and support Rhode Island's local businesses on Small Business Saturday, a special promotion from American Express.

Shake the dust of Black Friday off, and get ready to head back out and support local businesses here in Rhode Island on Small Business Saturday.

Formally a program sponsored by American Express, Small Business Saturday offers you $25 back when you spend $25 or more at a qualifying small business on Saturday, November 24th.
(You need to enroll your eligible American Express Card online, here, to participate).

Celebrating and supporting small businesses

The program began in 2010 when American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help small businesses get more exposure during one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year. Last year, over 100 million people came out nationwide to shop at independently-owned small businesses on the day. Now, in its third year, Small Business Saturday will be even bigger. American Express is offering free and easy-to-use tools to help small businesses get the most out of the day and tools for consumers to show their support.

Where can you officially participate for Small Business Saturday? Jump online and enter your zip code (or town you want to shop in), here, and you'll get a map and list of shops, from downtown Providence to North Kingstown, Newport, and Woonsocket.

Keep it local

Many of the SBS participants will be offering fun incentives and deals on Saturday. Rob Babigian, owner of WHARF, the popular men's store in Providence's Downcity, is not only marking down 20% OFF additional to all products in store, including sale items, but if you spend $250 or more in store this Saturday, you will receive a complimentary Apolis x WHARF Providence Market Bag free, said Babigian. Barrington Books will mark down the popular KOBO-Mini down from $79.99 to $49.99 for SBS. For more incentives, check out the home or Facebook pages of each participating retailer.
