MELROSE — On Saturday, November 27, the Melrose Chamber of Commerce wants to share Small Business Saturday with you! This national campaign, started by American Express, happens the Saturday after Black Friday and reminds us all: Support our local small businesses. Think of a few stores, restaurants or businesses you would miss if they disappeared, and plan to spend money there this holiday season. It makes a big impact!

This year, Cambridge Savings Bank is our local Presenting Sponsor, and with their support we will have a DJ in downtown Melrose to help get us into the spending spirit. “Small businesses like those in Melrose are the economic engine of our local communities and Cambridge Savings Bank is proud to be the local Presenting Sponsor of Small Business Saturday,” says Louie Soares, AVP and Melrose Branch Manager for Cambridge Savings Bank.

“We encourage residents to patronize their favorite businesses and visit those that are new to them throughout the year, but especially on Small Business Saturday,” says Jennifer Manning, Executive Director of the Melrose Chamber of Commerce.

The list of participating businesses is subject to change. Small Business Saturday will take place during each business’ current Saturday hours. Please check with your favorite business regarding their hours of operation. For more information, visit or call the Chamber Office at 781-665-3033.
