In 2010, American Express launched a national campaign to help promote small and local businesses, Small Business Saturday. The campaign encourages the public to support their local businesses with the slogan "Shop Small". Visit https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/shop-small/ for more information on the campaign.
Downtown Odessa, Inc. is a proud participant of Small Business Saturday and will enter its third year of participating. Held every Saturday after Thanksgiving Day, the 2017 date of Small Business Saturday will be November 25th. While we support and encourage small, local businesses every day, we see this as an opportunity to draw more attention and to help the citizens of Odessa to "Shop Small".
