Today is Small Business Saturday and I’m headed out the door to do my part, showing my support for small businesses and my community by shopping!
Small Business Saturday was conceived and is promoted by American Express to encourage holiday shoppers to patronize businesses that are small and local. I personally enjoy shopping and supporting small businesses in our area all year because I can find fun and unique items the big chain-stores don’t have. I also find the owners are actually appreciative that I shop their stores and offer a better quality of customer service. And every purchase I make at a small business helps pay the salaries of my community, my neighbors, my friends.
Shopping small helps create and support local jobs. So get out there today and shop small!
