Did you go out and shop on Black Friday? Now, that you got that out of your system, don’t forget about the small shops, the shops that make a difference to families and friends. When you support a local business, you’re also supporting your town, city, and neighborhood. Not to mention a friend or family!
Three reasons to shop small:
- It’s friendly – At a small business, chances are you’ll be waited on by the owner, a member of their family, or someone who reports directly to the owner
- Your supporting a family directly – it could pay for private school, lessons, even putting food on the table
- It’s good to be part of the dream – Small-business owners are the embodiment of the American Dream; supporting them makes you part of the dream, and that’s a good thing.
Since, I have been getting more and more into instagram and brand repping for SMALL SHOPS, I have seen how much it makes a difference for these shops. I have been introduced to so many small shops that I have grown to love and will continue to shop at. I know that it is helping a family and community.
There are a ton of discounts out there for Small Business Saturday, be sure to check them out. Even a ton of shops are extending their black friday sale to go the whole weekend.
Shopping small makes great gifts for Christmas, so don’t miss out!
