LVABA Urges Nashvillians to Support “Small Business Saturday,” November 29
NASHVILLE, TN— November 19, 2014 – The Lenox Village Area Business Association (LVABA)—which now represents nearly 70 small businesses in the Lenox Village area of south Nashville—is urging Nashvillians to support small businesses in their neighborhood on Small Business Saturday, November 29.
Launched in 2010 as “small business’s answer to Black Friday” (which tends to benefit larger corporations), Small Business Saturday has grown to become a nationwide economic phenomenon. Last year, consumers who were aware of Small Business Saturday spent $5.7 billion with independent merchants on that day, according to research published by the National Federation of Independent Business.
“Small Business Saturday offers Nashvillians a way to show their support for an invaluable part of our local economy, the creator of nearly 2 out of 3 new jobs,” the LVABA noted. “It’s a great way to kick off the Christmas gift-giving season, and show your support for the small businesses in your own Nashville neighborhood.”
In 2013, forty-one state governors issued proclamations supporting Small Business Saturday, and more than 3.3 million Facebook users already have “liked” a page dedicated to the promotion.
