American Express founded the day in 2010 to help small businesses get exposure during the holiday season, when they might be otherwise overlooked. With retailers buzzing around the holidays, it is important to support local small businesses that rely on their neighbors in order to continue prospering and building the local economy in Hellertown and Lower Saucon Township.
Last year, 100 million people nationwide participated in Small Business Saturday by shopping at locally-owned stores to help boost the economy and their communities.
Here is a partial list of businesses in the Upper Macungie area taking part in the program. For additional businesses, including dining establishments, please refer to the searchable map on the Small Business Saturday website.
