GLEN ROCK, NJ - The Glen Rock Chamber of Commerce announced this week, as a member of the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program, it will host an event as part of Small Business Saturday, which takes place on Nov 30.
Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday celebrates the impact small businesses have on communities across the country.
The Glen Rock Chamber of Commerce celebrates the 10th Annual Small Business Saturday® by hosting an information table along with costumed characters and a magician on Rock Road on Friday, November 29 and an information table and promotional item giveaway on Saturday, November 30 as an American Express® Neighborhood Champion.
For four years, Neighborhood Champions Eileen Maher Hillock and Patricia Zengel have been the liaisons between the American Express and the Glen Rock Chamber of Commerce and American Express since the event inception in Glen Rock in 2016.
This year’s celebration is the 10th Annual Small Business Saturday, marking a decade of support from American Express for local business owners. Since it started in 2010, consumers have reported spending an estimated $103 billion across all Small Business Saturdays combined. That’s $103 billion toward helping communities thrive, spent over just nine days alone.
An average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at a small business in the U.S. stays in that local community. That means shopping small could help bring things like better schools, smoother roads, and new jobs to neighborhoods across the country.
