Show Support for Small Business Saturday!

SHOP SMALL this holiday season! Join millions of shoppers around the country for Small Business Saturday, on November 24th - two days after Thanksgiving.

This year, to raise awareness about the value of shopping locally, BIDs around the city are coming together for the Small Business Saturday Coalition, a citywide campaign to highlight the diversity of small and independent businesses in New York. The Flatiron BID is happy to shine a spotlight on the unique retail opportunities that contribute to the neighborhood character of Flatiron and fellow NYC communities. 

As a Neighborhood Champion, an official American Express designation, the Flatiron BID will highlight events and deals happening in the neighborhood. Check back to FlatironDistrict.NYC next week for exciting opportunities to support local Flatiron businesses. 

Not familiar with Small Business Saturday? The campaign began in 2010 when American Express founded the event to encourage consumers to “Shop Small,” and in 2011, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution officially recognizing Small Business Saturday. Since then, elected officials and community organizations play an important role in supporting the event, a cornerstone of the holiday shopping season. Since Small Business Saturday started, U.S. customers have reported spending an estimated total of $85 billion at independent retailers and restaurants — that's $85 billion over 8 days alone.

Flatiron Small Business Owner? If you are a small business owner in the Flatiron District and would like to learn more about becoming a participating business on Small Business Saturday, please contact the Flatiron BID at info@flatironbid.org. Additionally, the BID has marketing materials to share with businesses like storefront logos, social media posts, or website banners to drive consumers to their stores. Eligible businesses may utilize the Shop Small Studio to quickly create personalized marketing materials.

Save the Date - 11/24!
