Hibu Proudly Supports Small Business Saturday 2018
At Hibu, our sole focus is helping small businesses succeed and grow -– that’s why we’re pleased to announce that once again this year, Hibu is an official Corporate Supporter for Small Business Saturday®, taking place on November 24th.
Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting local small businesses, strengthening local economies and celebrating communities across the country.
Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday serves as the ceremonial kickoff to the holiday shopping season for small businesses across the United States. In 2017, an estimated 108 million consumers reported shopping or dining at local, independently-owned businesses on Small Business Saturday, according to the Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey.1
As a Corporate Supporter, we’ll be promoting Small Business Saturday on our website, Hibu.com, on the Hibu Blog, and on social media — and we encourage our employees, partners, clients and all consumers to be part of this special day.
Business owners who want to participate can visit ShopSmall.com/YourDay for free promotional assets and prepared social posts. All of us can support our neighborhood businesses simply by getting out and shopping on the 24thand encouraging our friends and family members by sharing Small Business Saturday posts on social media.
At Hibu, we recognize the importance of supporting small businesses, the jobs they help create, and the culture they foster in local communities. We’re proud to be part of Small Business Saturday, celebrating the diversity of small businesses across the U.S. After all, small businesses accounted for 61.8% of net new jobs from the first quarter of 1993 until the third quarter of 2016 and represented 99.7% of firms with paid employees.2
We’re excited again this year to support Small Business Saturday. Help us show our love for small businesses and “Shop Small!” on November 24th.

1 The Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey was conducted by Teneo among a nationally representative sample of 2,160 U.S. adults 18 years of age or older. The sample was collected using an email invitation and an online survey. The study gathered self-reported data and does not reflect actual receipts or sales. It was conducted anonymously on November 26, 2017. The survey has an overall margin of error of +/- 2.1%, at the 95% level of confidence. Projections are based on the current U.S. Census estimates of the U.S. adult population, age 18 years and over. The survey was commissioned by American Express and the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB).
