Small Business Administration (SBA) Illinois District director Robert Steiner will appear at Suzette's Creperie Restaurant & Bakery in Wheaton, IL, encouraging area residents to shop small on November 29 as part of the Kick-off for Small Business Saturday and its Holiday Shopping season. Small Business Saturday is dedicated to supporting small businesses that anchor local communities and strengthen local economies. 

The weekend after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping weekend of the year. Many small businesses rely upon the holiday shopping period to ensure a successful year on their books.

 As advocates for small businesses throughout the state, SBA is reminding Illinoisans to not only shop small on Small Business Saturday, but to continue to shop small throughout the year at their local grocers, their main street businesses, and at their neighborhood restaurants. Steiner will be visiting Suzette's Creperie Restaurant to start the Small Business Saturday initiative.
