Support local and indie businesses on Saturday, November 28 with the 6th annual Small Business Saturday in Nashville! In 2010, American Express launched Small Business Saturday as a means to give back to local communities. An estimated 88 million people participated in Small Business Saturday last year with more neighborhoods set to take part this year than ever before. Plan your 2015 shopping route and find local vendors with the free tools available at the Shop Small page from American Express.
For those spending Small Business Saturday in Nashville, head to the Nashville Farmers’ Market to find fresh foods and sample local brew. Just south of Nashville, Franklin will be offering free transportation from the Factory to historic Downtown Franklin on the Hop & Shop Trolley. The trolley leaves at 10 a.m., but many local stores will be open all day.
