Shop local for gifts and experiences to be remembered, long after the holidays are over!
Small Business Saturday is a retail event that occurs in November and was initially created (by American Express) to encourage consumers to shop locally, in person and online, at small businesses. It’s a great opportunity for small businesses to increase sales during the holiday shopping season as they compete with companies like Amazon or Walmart. Plus, it reminds people of the benefits of shopping local, such as keeping your money invested in the community, creating a personal connection to local businesses, delivering enhanced expertise and service, and helping you find those unique and diverse products and services for the very best gift—even for the quirkiest folks on your list.
Small Business Saturday is more than an event, however, it’s a mindset we can all enjoy year-round! So avoid the lines and shipping delays this holiday season and give your loved ones an experience to remember...one that will last long after the thrill of the season is over.
