2016 Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, & Cyber Monday Shopping Guide

Can you believe this is the eighth year that we’ve published the iheartretail.com Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday shopping guide? I could not be more excited that every year, thousands of readers tune in to plan their post-Thanksgiving shopping with the independent retailers we’re grateful to be supporting.

If you’re a regular iheartretail.com reader, then you’re already probably pretty keen on shopping and spending locally. But if this is your first time reading our annual shopping guide, please take just a moment to check out these impressive numbers on why shopping local impacts the communities we live in:

  • Small businesses donate 250% more than larger businesses to non-profits and community causes. (Source: Seattle Good Business Network)
  • If you spend $100 at a local business, roughly $68 stays in your local economy. If you spend the same are a large business, only $43 stays in the local economy. (Source: Civic Economics Study in Grand Rapids, Michigan)

So there you have it, you can feel good about savings big when you shop small this holiday season – and throughout the year!

And now, here’s this year’s list as of Thursday, November 24, at 11:45 a.m. If you’re a retailer and would like to be added to this list, please email your information to me at Lisa@iheartretail.com and I’ll do my best to add your details in a timely fashion… in between great eats and drinks with family and friends, of course!
