More than 88 million consumers participated in Small Business Saturday on November 29th - a 14.9% increase over 2013.
NFIB partnered with American Express to promote Shop Small nationwide. Small Business Saturday has quickly become a holiday shopping tradition, alongside Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Also this week in small business, crucial tax expensing legislation faced a setback when President Obama threatened to veto it.
Finally, the NFIB Small Business Legal Center has asked the Supreme Court to take up an important property rights case that would ensure that small businesses and others have their day in court when it comes to overregulation by the executive branch.
