It’s now November, which means Small Business Saturday is just around the corner! With Thanksgiving falling on November 23 this year, this makes Black Friday (even if we did kick off Black Fri-YAY early!) officially November 24. And most importantly, for travel agencies like yours, that means Saturday, November 25 is your day this year.
But ALG Vacations® supports small businesses like our travel agency partners every day of the year, from education programs to rich rewards and marketing and sales resources. So in order to make this day extra special, we’ve ramped up and added a few more resources to your toolkit to help you make a big impact for this Small Business Saturday.
