Shop Locally in Peabody on Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24

Start your holiday shopping at locally owned stores during Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday is on Nov. 24 this year, two days after Thanksgiving. It is a day for everyone to support the small businesses that their community thrives on.

American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Peabody.

"Think it doesn't make a difference?" says Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Deanne Healey. "If just half of the employed population of Peabody spent just $50 each at small businesses, it would generate over $600,000 in sales this one day alone."

Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.

Here are just a few of the businesses participating this Saturday by offering special discounts to customers:

  • 17 Central Street Liquors
