The Beaumont Convention & Visitors Bureau, Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce and Better Business Bureau Serving Southeast Texas announced its participation in the sixth annual Small Business Saturday on November 28th to support small businesses in Beaumont. Founded by American Express® in 2010, Small Business Saturday® is a day to celebrate the small businesses that help support their neighborhoods and is held every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Now in its sixth year, Small Business Saturday has been embraced as part of the holiday shopping tradition as each year shoppers, businesses and public officials come together to Shop Small® and show their neighborhood pride. On November 24th from 7:30am to 9:00am, the greater Beaumont area is encouraged to take part in the Small Business Saturday kickoff event, the Beaumont Breakfast Challenge at the McFaddin-Ward House. The Beaumont Breakfast Challenge will offer savvy shoppers a chance to gear up and plan for a big day of shopping local on Small Business Saturday. Event admission is $5 and attendees will taste-test and vote on delicious breakfast offerings from the line of challengers. There will be door prizes, Shop Small giveaways like bags, buttons and balloons and the exclusive opportunity to connect with local storeowners handing out coupons and seasonal offers.
