Small Business Saturday takes place on Saturday, 24 November

  • The public is encouraged to “Shop Small” in support of local micro & small businesses
  • Several small businesses will have special offers for the initiative


GRAND CAYMAN (GIS) – This month the public is encouraged to ‘shop small’, as the Cayman Islands Small Business Association (CISBA), with support from the Ministry of Commerce, celebrates Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday, 24 November.  The initiative is a holiday shopping tradition that began in 2010 and is observed around the globe with the aim of supporting small businesses.

“When small businesses thrive, we all thrive,” comments Hon. Joseph Hew, Minister for Commerce. “Government has made supporting small businesses one of its key priorities. We will continue to work to create an atmosphere that is business friendly, but our work is only one part of what’s needed to have a thriving economy – we need people to shop locally to ensure continued success. I encourage everyone to get out and shop small in support of our local business owners.”

The initiative comes off the heels of last month’s Small Business Expo.

“Small Business Saturday is a great follow up to the expo. At the recent expo the public was able to get a sampling of the products and services from the various participating businesses. Now they can actually get into the stores and see the full scope of what’s on offer,” says CISBA President Dawn McLean-Brady.

Several businesses will be participating in Small Business Saturday and will have special discounts and offers set for that day.

“The holiday season is almost here, so not only are you supporting the local economy but you can get a jump start on your gift list! We really hope that come 24 November everyone will ‘shop small’”, says Mrs. McLean-Brady.
