    In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single-day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before.

    Locally, the La Salle Business Association organizes the event and coordinates the marketing efforts.

    Make four purchases at any of the participating businesses and be entered to win one of (3) $50 Locally La Salle City-wide Shopping Card that is valid at over 30 businesses throughout La Salle!
