Why Shop Small? 5 Great Reasons to Support Small Business and Shop Local
Are you busy making Black Friday plans? The holiday shopping season is just getting started. Good news: Small Business Saturday is November 29!
In 2010 American Express launched Small Business Saturday too help businesses with their most pressing need — attracting more customers. The day encourages people across the country to shop at small, local businesses, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
When you shop local, it can lead to big things in your community!
5 Reasons to Support Small Business and Shop Local
1. Boosts the Local Economy
Each dollar spent at locally owned businesses returns an average of three times more money to your community than spending at national chains.
2. Customer Service is Better
Local business owners have specific product expertise. They often make their cell phone numbers available. Now that is personal customer service!
3. Maintains Local Character and Prosperity
Small businesses add unique character to a community. Distinctive regional features attract outside investors, enhance your personal satisfaction, and increase property values.
4. Greater Support for Non-Profits
Small local businesses donate more resources to local charities and teams compared to big business. Additionally, large firms contribute primarily to the areas where the corporation is headquartered, not necessarily where they do business.
5. Offer Unique, Personalized Products
Small shops often sell locally made, unique items that are not available at major chains.
