Successful Small Businesses Saturday

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) — The 12th annual Small Business Saturday was a success in the Capital City.

The day was started by American Express and the majority of small businesses reported they are expecting a bigger holiday this year even with supply chain shortages.

Alderwoman Lakeisha Purchase said she had an amazing time downtown at Tuesday night’s Committee of the Whole Meeting.

“We had business downtown that did over $20,000 in sales,” Purchase said.

Almost 80% of small businesses say sales from Small Businesses Saturday and this holiday season will determine whether or not they can keep their doors open in 2022.
