We want to share a little bit about Small Business Saturday® with you! It’s a holiday shopping tradition that celebrates small businesses like ours.  And it wouldn’t be a celebration without customers like you joining us.

What is Small Business Saturday®?

Small Business Saturday®was founded by American Express in 2010 to help bring more customers to local shops. Today, it’s a holiday shopping tradition that celebrates a greater nationwide movement. This movement is dedicated to uniting communities and supporting all kinds of small businesses, from corner stores to online boutiques. Each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, shoppers, business owners, and organizations come together to Shop Small and share the place they love with the people they love.

What is Shop Small®?

Shop Small® is a movement fueled by individual shoppers, business owners, and organizers who encourage shopping small all year long because they know it matters. Shopping small is more than just the act of shopping at  small businesses. It’s a feeling of walking into that corner coffee shop where they always know your order, or of settling in at that tiny theater your dad used to take you to. But it’s also a cause; one that supports local economies and promotes vibrant, diverse communities.

Why Shop Small with us?

Teaching & Learning Stuff has been a family-owned business in Arizona for over 25 years. It’s true we have served thousands of teachers looking for the best products for classrooms. However, we also serve anyone else looking for fun, quality learning items for the kids in their lives. We have a knowledgeable staff ready to help you find the best merchandise hand-picked just for you. Plus, we’ll gift wrap your purchases for free! Read about what happens when you shop local and know we appreciate you when you do.

So mark your calendar for Nov 24th — the Saturday after Thanksgiving — and get ready to Shop Small® with us. Grab a friend or family member and come by Teaching & Learning Stuff stores starting at 10:00 AM on the big day.  We’ll be waiting to show our appreciation for your support! You can help get the word out about Small Business Saturday® by using #ShopSmall on Facebook, Instagram, and all your social networks.

Thank you for all your support, and we’ll see you Saturday, Nov 24th!
