Here we are again! The holiday season is upon us, and for most of us that means family, food, and shopping! And quite a lot of it. It seems that each year those Black Friday special deals are promoted earlier and earlier, so much so that you can’t even keep track of when to get what.
As much as I am an avid Black Friday shopper, I have recently found more enjoyment (and money savings) in Small Business Saturday. In just eight short years, this day has become an American shopping tradition. Well-known credit card company American Express® kicked off Small Business Saturday back in 2010 and has invested greatly towards its success, turning the day into a game-changer for small, local businesses during the holiday season. Here are some quick reasons to shop local this bargaining season!
At Rhinebeck Bank, we strongly support our customers and all local business in the Hudson Valley. We eat, drink, shop, and conduct business locally everyday, all year. On this special shopping day, we encourage everyone to enjoy their Saturday supporting their neighbors and experiencing what we already know- how amazing the Hudson Valley truly is!
