Please Join Us in Supporting Small Business Saturday

Saturday, November 29, 2014 is Small Business Saturday® – a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. Please join RepublicBankAz and organizations across the country in supporting your local small business by shopping at a small business.

According to Forbes, "Small Business Saturday turns five this week. Launched by American Express in 2009 at the height of the great recession, the day has been officially enshrined--unanimously--by the United States Senate, and has been publicly promoted by the President each Thanksgiving weekend. This day, and the associated "Shop Small" initiative has helped generate literally billions of dollars of revenue for tens of thousands of small retailers. It is the rarest of things--an initiative launched by a single company that has become an enduring part of our business culture."

This reflects RepublicBankAZ, N.A.'s desire to strengthen our community.
