BISMARCK, N.D., Nov. 25, 2014—Italian Moon pizza in Grand Forks is letting it be known nationally that they’ll be open and ready for Small Business Saturday this weekend.
The pizzeria took advantage of a free offer from the National Federation of Independent Business, America’s voice of small business, to post any deals
it had to give for Small Business Saturday, November 29.
“Our joint campaign with American Express is paying nice dividends for the economy,” said Rae Ann Kelsch, NFIB’s North Dakota state director. “Now in its fifth year, I predict awareness of Small Business Saturday will top 75 percent nationally and sales at local, independent firms to exceed the $5.7 billion after last year’s promotion. The variety Main Street offers over the suburban shopping mall will astound and delight consumers conditioned to spending all their time and money on Black Friday, instead of waiting a day for Small Business Saturday.”
Both Amex and NFIB offered small businesses a free opportunity to advertise their wares on their websites.
For more than 70 years, the National Federation of Independent Business has been the Voice of Small Business, taking the message from Main Street to the halls of Congress and all 50 state legislatures. NFIB annually surveys its members on state and federal issues vital to their survival as America’s economic engine and biggest creator of jobs. NFIB’s educational mission is to remind policymakers that small businesses are not smaller versions of bigger businesses; they have very different challenges and priorities.
