Shop Small

Greetings, Small Business Owners!

The city of Niagara Falls is encouraging all local small business owners to participate in the annual “Small Business Saturday / Shop Small” event—celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year’s event will take place “all-day” on Saturday, November 28.  Shop Small is a nationwide movement—backed by American Express, to celebrate businesses every day–and to help communities thrive and stay vibrant! But don’t worry, you don’t have to accept American Express to participate in Small Business Saturday.

Mayor Restaino’s Message to Small Businesses-


“Small business is a critical part of any local economy, and so it is with our City. The men and women that run small businesses in Niagara Falls have had a rough go of it this year, but they stayed there for us. Now it’s time for us to be there for them.” –Mayor Robert Restaino
