After the hullabaloo of Thanksgiving, going out and joining the mad frenzy of shoppers on Black Friday can certainly be intimidating. The good news is that this year, you can rest the day after Thanksgiving while not missing out. The solution is Small Business Saturday.
Never heard of Small Business Saturday? Understandable, as it’s still fairly new. It was launched by American Express in 2010 to encourage customers to shop at small businesses instead of devoting all their time and money to the big corporate names that steal the day every Black Friday.
Small Business Saturday (or SBS) acts as a break for customers from the chaos of long lines and over-crowded stores on the previous day. It’s also a reminder to support small businesses, which are the backbone of every community.
On the American Express website, you’ll see an exciting countdown to the day as well as a “shop small” map, where you can find nearby shops in your area for holiday deals.
Free Range Office is a long participant of the celebrated SBS, from handing out discount-winning passports at a Wicker Park SBS event in past years, to offering deals today. So if you’re planning on hitting up Wicker Park on your weekend, drop by Free Range Office to see what the space can offer you.
Here’s a breakdown of the discounts Free Range will be offering over the weekend. For Black Friday, you can get 20% off on events. You’ll receive a free gift when you sign up for a coworking membership on SBS and you can get 20% off meetings on Cyber Monday. Make sure to sign up for the newsletter on the Free Range website to get the promo codes so you can cash in on our deals. Visit the shop page for more.
