It's that time of year when our email boxes are inundated with sales offers. Yesterday I had 6 emails from one large company alone. Multiply that by every company I had ever done business with (and a few I had never heard of!) and I had more emails yesterday than I think I've had in total all year so far. Most small business owners can't compete with these larger corporations - I know I don't have the time, energy, or budget. Plus, I don't think my customers would appreciate hearing from me every two hours.
Holidays typically make up a large portion of a small retail business's revenue for the year, so sales are critical for our business survival. That being said, however, we appreciate all of our friends and customers who support us throughout the year. We understand that most people have a spending budget and that not all of our products are right for everyone, but there are 10 things that you can do for free, yes free, that support small business.
Thank you to everyone who helps your local small businesses thrive! Please know that each and every one of you is greatly appreciated! And if you're still looking for some unique gifts, check out our products (20% discount using promo code ShopSmall20).
