"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
Small Business Saturday - Can I Even SAY That?

I'm not much of a shopper. I can't remember the last time I was in a Walmart or any big box chain store. My wife has never been to the Walmart since it moved to Kimmel Crossing and was in the old one a couple of times. Where do we shop? Small stores generally. There is support in some circles for small businesses. Even a day "just" for small businesses.
You've seen those commercials from American Express about Small Business Saturday and heard their ads promotion Shop Small. Isn't ironic that American Express owns the copyright to the event and the name and slogan trademark and has sold the concept to FedEx, Foursquare, Twitter, and the United State Postal Service. Only in America.
