#ShopSmall Saturday

Event Date: Saturday, November 30, 2019

In 2010, as an effort to support local shops that make our communities strong, American Express launched Small Business Saturday® on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses.

Since 2013, the Skagway Development Corporation has championed Skagway in this nation-wide event in an effort to increase winter business in Skagway and supporting local business owners. All local retailers or service providers are encouraged to participate in this community event and help encourage community members to buy local.
