Nestled in between the big-box-chaos of Black Friday and the shopping-in-your-PJs trend of Cyber Monday is the chance to casually stroll through local shops, pick up unique gifts, and support your community. Small Business Saturday is on November 28th this year, and it’s a fun and relaxing way to shop for the holidays while making a big difference in the place you call home. Show your support of this powerful event by rallying others on social media and getting out to shop small at the local businesses that serve your neighborhood.
Make a Difference
When you shop small, you make a difference. The money you spend stays in the local economy and goes toward strengthening your community. Small business owners are your neighbors, and they care about having a safe, fun, and thriving place to call home–just like you do. That’s why they give money to local charities, create and sponsor local events, and volunteer. Plus, they create jobs and employ local workers, so purchasing from them means that you are helping to put food on tables, mortgage payments in the mail, and kids in college. With tax dollars from your purchase going to your local government, it also means improvements for the park districts, schools, and roads you and your neighbors use everyday. Patronizing local businesses truly makes a difference, so get out and shop small this Saturday and all year long!
Make a Connection
If one purchase from a small business makes a difference, imagine the effect of thousands, even millions, of purchases. Connect with others and encourage them to join the Shop Small movement by spreading the word on social media. Use the hashtags #ShopSmall, #IndependentWeStand, and #SmallBusinessSaturday. Visit our Facebook page to share our Shop Small status, and tell your friends and family to check out our Houzz, Pinterest, or Google + sites as well. Together, we can have the biggest impact.
