Shop Small and Support our Local Community
Beltsville Business Directory is proud to support small businesses, and we are proud to support our community. When you shop at a local small business, you help our community grow. Together, let’s help strengthen Beltsville by continuing to support the Shop Small® initiative. What you spend with small businesses in Beltsville will ultimately go back to supporting our community.
Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local. In 2010 the holiday was conceived and promoted by American Express via a nationwide radio and television advertising campaign.
American Express publicized the initiative using social media, advertising, and public relations. The Twitter hashtag #SmallBusinessSaturday has existed since early 2010 and was used to promote small businesses on any Saturday (not solely that Saturday between Black Friday and Cyber Monday)
