Small Business Saturday 2018 in Salem, MA
Salem, MA will celebrate Small Business Saturday with the support of the Salem Chamber of Commerce, Salem Main Streets, and a number of local small businesses. On November 24, head downtown and get some of your holiday shopping done at local small businesses, where you’ll be able to support the community while stocking up on some freebies and using discounts that are exclusive to this shopping event.
Small Business Saturday was founded in 2010 as a way of helping small businesses receive support from their communities during the holiday shopping season when many consumers are shopping at larger chain stores. In recent years, Small Business Saturday has also become part of a larger movement against Black Friday, the holiday shopping event that tends to run earlier into Thanksgiving each year. By shopping during Small Business Saturday instead of Black Friday, we are able to spend more time with our families on Thanksgiving while also supporting our community.

Many retail locations in Salem will be offering various discounts and promotions throughout Small Business Saturday, and the City of Salem has made parking downtown free for the day!
