After such a close U.S. election, it’s hard to imagine 93% of Americans agreeing on anything! But that’s the percentage of consumers who think it’s important to support small businesses in their community.

If you agree, now’s your chance to show it! Small Business Saturday is November 24 (sandwiched in-between Black Friday and Cyber Monday), and everyone is encouraged to shop local and support hometown businesses.

Here’s a fun infographic to show just how important small businesses are to our economy.

NOTE: Small Business Saturday is sponsored by American Express, a BBB Accredited Business and a National Partner.
