Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday celebrates the impact small businesses have on communities across the country.
The Mesquite Chamber of Commerce will be using social media paid advertising and print promotion to keep locals informed of the specials that each of the participating businesses and organizations will be hosting. Shoppers should plan to see specials and events from businesses in retail, dining, salons, health and wellness, the arts, and more. To bring a little more entertainment and holiday cheer to Small Business Saturday, the Chamber will also be hosting an interactive game this year called “Find Peppermint Jingle.” Peppermint the Chamber Elf will be hiding at select participating businesses where adult shoppers can try to find him and be entered into a drawing for a gift certificate to one of the businesses participating in Small Business Saturday, while children may receive a holiday treat at the store provided by the Chamber for their efforts.
This year’s celebration is the 11th Annual Small Business Saturday, since it started in 2010, consumers have reported spending an estimated $120 billion across all Small Business Saturdays combined. (1) That’s $120 billion toward helping communities thrive, spent over just ten days alone.
In order to drive shoppers to Shop Small® this Nov 28, the Mesquite Chamber of Commerce is participating in the Small Business Saturday Coalition Program to spotlight small businesses and the impact they have on communities. According to the 2019 Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey, 97% of consumers who shopped on Small Business Saturday agree that small businesses are essential to their community and 95% reported the day makes them want to shop or eat at small, independently-owned businesses all year long, not just during the holiday season(2).

The Mesquite Parade of Lights was created in 2015 to celebrate the Christmas holiday season twofold; to bring the community together to enjoy the lights and to give to those who are less fortunate. The event has grown to become Mesquite’s largest canned-food drive each year. Starting with just 1,000 pounds in 2015, the efforts of the community and businesses were able to increase that to 7,010 pounds of food in 2018 to split between the Virgin Valley Food Bank and the Salvation Army.
This year, the goal is to exceed 10,000 pounds of food. In addition to collecting food along the parade route, donation boxes will be set up at Mesquite Fire Station 3 located at 3 John Deere Drive, the Mesquite Recreation Center at 100 W. Old Mill Rd, Mesquite Senior Center at 102 W. Old Mill Rd, Sun City Mesquite Recreation Center at 1300 Flat Top Mesa, Mesquite Police Department at 695 Mayan Circle, and Mesquite City Hall at 10 E. Mesquite Blvd. during normal business hours beginning November 1.
Local groups, schools, organizations and businesses are encouraged to participate in this event and may submit an application by November 27 to the City of Mesquite Clerk’s office, 10 E. Mesquite Boulevard, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The entry fee is 15 pounds of food, due at the time of application submission or at the mandatory participant meeting on December 2.
