Scranton Tomorrow Organizes Small Business Saturday

Mayor Paige G. Cognetti, leaders of Scranton Tomorrow, and local business owners recently gathered at Scranton Tomorrow headquarters on Linden Street in Downtown Scranton as Mayor Cognetti officially proclaimed November 26 as Small Business Saturday in the Electric City.

American Express created this national movement to increase sales for small businesses across the country. Now in its 14th year, Scranton Tomorrow is spearheading Small Business Saturday promotions in Downtown Scranton. Those who shop and dine in the Downtown Scranton Business District during the holidays are encouraged to spread the joy on social media using #shopsmall, #smallbiz, #supportlocal, #shoplocal, #dinelocal.

Supporting local makes a significant impact on the economy. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses create 1.5 million jobs annually in the United States and donate 250 percent more than larger businesses donate to non-profits and community causes. Small businesses are vital to the local economy, too. American Express estimates that for every $1 spent at a small business, $0.67 stays within the local community that business serves.

In Downtown Scranton, independent businesses offer plenty of options to make supporting local easy. In addition to in-person shopping and dining, many retailers and restaurants are promoting online sales, curbside pickup, and delivery services for convenient shopping and dining in the Business District.
