Small Business Saturday
Main Street Portsmouth helps local small businesses organize for the National Small Business Saturday, brought to you by American Express. Nationwide, people embrace their local businesses to the tune of billions. According to American Express and surveys they published, 2018 produced 104 million shoppers who spent a record high of $17.8 billion. Local businesses say this day is one of their highest grossing of the year and many depend on it to offset the increased cost of utilities in winter.
Every Saturday following Thanksgiving, people are encouraged to visit local businesses for holiday shopping. We have countless places around town to buy unique gifts you can't find in big box stores that also helps your neighbor.
