It’s that time of the year! When multiple email newsletters flood the inbox, Facebook ads pop up every few posts, and radio hosts announce an amazing deal every few songs, there is no doubt that Black Friday is here.
In addition to the constant chatter of Black Friday weekend deals and steals, there is another nationwide shopping campaign happening simultaneously. Meet Small Business Saturday, a shopping day originally created to support small businesses within the community. Self-identifying as a small business, we are proud to promote and support this countrywide initiative; preview our Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday promotions on personalized socks below!
What is Small Business Saturday?
It all started in 2010. The Great Recession hit, and the economy took a turn, especially for small businesses. Recognizing the impact, American Express launched a nationwide movement called Small Business Saturday that sought to bring holiday shoppers to local small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
One year later, waves of support started to ripple across the country. Local government officials took notice, the Senate passed a unanimous resolution to support Small Business Saturday, and even the president of the United States gave a little shoutout (thanks Obama!).
Today, the little idea that stemmed from the small business has grown into a nationwide holiday shopping tradition driven by millions of communities and individuals, like you.
Shop Small with Sockprints
"Can you print on socks?" was the question from one entrepreneurial soccer mom to another. The first attempt went well, but took about 30 minutes to print on customized socks. The second attempt was better, thanks to specialized processing techniques mixed with new technology. Nowadays, Sockprints operates as a cutting edge personalized socks store, specializing in unique and original designs for the happy sole. Check out the assortment of custom printed socks on our Instagram!
