Mom-and-pop companies throughout Long Beach will once again participate in Small Business Saturday later this week.

Small Business Saturday brings shoppers together every November to support mom-and-pop shops in their communities and online. Falling right in the middle of one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year, this initiative gives small business owners a chance to enhance their sales before the holiday season.

Small Business Saturday was introduced in 2010 by American Express. It was such a success that in the following year, the United States Senate passed a resolution in support of SBS.

Small Business Saturday occurs every year on the day before Black Friday and just before Cyber Monday. This year, SBS is on Saturday, Nov. 26.
