Small Business Saturday, New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS – Eight years ago, American Express created Small Business Saturday in order to fill a void felt by small business owners during the holiday season. 

Now in it's 8th year, a report conducted by American Express found that 86 percent of shoppers said Small Business Saturday "inspires them to go to small retailers and restaurants that they haven't been to before, or wouldn't have otherwise tried."

In addition, the report found that 90 percent of consumers say the day has a positive impact in their communities as a whole.
