YP℠, a leading local marketing solutions provider, today announced its participation in this year’s Small Business Saturday, taking place on November 28th. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to strengthening the community by supporting local small businesses.

As a champion for connecting local businesses with consumers, YP recognizes the importance of supporting small businesses across the country, the jobs they help create, and the culture they instill in local communities. YP works with local businesses to help them get found by establishing a digital presence, promote their business and expand their audience.

“Shopping small sensitizes us to the uniqueness and vibrancy of our local communities.  This campaign fits perfectly with YP’s mission to help local businesses and communities grow,” said Allison Checchi, Chief Marketing Officer of YP.  “We help take one of the many burdens – marketing – off the shoulders of these local business owners so they can leverage YP’s expertise and spend more time running their business.”

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 2014, nearly 3,000 Neighborhood Champions rallied local businesses and created events and activities to drive shopping at small businesses around the country. The day was also championed by elected officials in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., including President Obama.

Merchants and consumers can learn more about Small Business Saturday and how to get involved by visiting ShopSmall.com and the official Small Business Saturday Facebook page.

Also celebrate local businesses by following the Make Every Day Local℠ campaign at makeeverydaylocal.com and using the hashtag #MakeEveryDayLocal on Facebook and Twitter.
