Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is a day to celebrate the small businesses that help support our community and is held every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Now in its sixth year, Small Business Saturday has been embraced as part of the holiday shopping tradition as each year shoppers, businesses, and public officials come together to Shop Small and show their community pride.
Understanding the important contributions small businesses make to the community, the Atchison Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce our participation in Small Business Saturday again this year. The Chamber has participated in this event since its founding year in 2010. The Chamber will sponsor a pancake feed on Saturday morning, November 26 from 9:30am -10:30am with free pancakes. Our local small businesses will offer a variety of gift choices for shoppers, and will be giving away canvas tote bags, bandanas, buttons, pennants and balloons.
