Edmond Chamber Supports Small Business Saturday

Posted by Rachel on 11/12/2015

The Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce announced today its support of the sixth-annual Small Business Saturday on November 28, 2015. Small Business Saturday is a day for dedicating a portion of holiday shopping to local, independently-owned small businesses.

Small business advocate groups, public and private organizations, and elected officials joined American Express, the founding sponsor of Small Business Saturday, to launch the national program in 2010 in response to small business owners’ most pressing need: more demand for their products and services.

The Edmond Chamber recognizes the importance of small businesses in Edmond, the jobs they create and the culture they instill in local communities. Please join us in supporting Edmond’s small businesses and shop at local independent stores on Saturday, November 28, 2015.

“Small Business Saturday is a day for Edmond residents to show support for the small businesses that invigorate the Edmond economy and keep our community growing.” statedKen Moore, President and CEO of the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Edmond Chamber supports small businesses in the Edmond area in a variety of ways throughout the year. The Chamber offers programs such as the Small Business Owners Alliance and Small Business Council monthly workshops and luncheons to educate and connect small businesses in the community. Last year, the Chamber launched a new program, Edmond Locally Owned. This program seeks to create awareness in the community and encourage consumers to shop at locally owned businesses.

The Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce is the voice for business. We enhance economic opportunity and quality of life in Edmond. The Edmond Chamber is a hundred year-old, 1,000 member organization working together to promote economic vitality and quality of life in the community.
