Destination DC Joins American Express In Support Of Small Business Saturday





Consumers Inspired to Think and Shop Small on November 24, 2012

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Destination DC today announces its participation in this year's Small Business Saturday, November 24, 2012. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to strengthening the community by supporting local, independently-owned small businesses.

Destination DC recognizes the importance of supporting independent businesses in Washington, DC, the jobs they help create and the culture they instill in our neighborhoods. According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses nationwide have accounted for 65% of net new jobs over the past 17 years in the United States, and represents 99.7% of all employer firms.  American Express, founding partner of Small Business Saturday, is preparing for the third annual initiative. In 2011, millions of consumers shopped at small businesses on Small Business Saturday.

"Destination DC is a membership organization charged with promoting the city's hospitality assets, including the independent retailers that make our neighborhoods must-shop stops for locals and visitors," said Elliott Ferguson, president and CEO of Destination DC. "The opportunity to marry unique DC-based businesses with Small Business Saturday, a nationally-focused incentive that rewards consumers as well as small business owners, is unmatched."
