According to American Express over 100 million people came together to Shop Small in their communities last year. Let’s make that number even higher for next year! Save on gas, shop local, and spend a little more on your gifts.
Here are a few suggestions of how you can support local businesses today!
- Rather than grabbing a cup of joe from Starbucks or Tim Horton’s, get out of your car and stop into your local coffee house!
- Check out your local flower shop for house decor items that you might be purchasing for friends or family. Most carry a variety of home gifts and they are usually one of a kind gifts.
- Wanting to buy your honey some jewelry for Christmas? Look locally at the smaller stores in your local community. You may find a better quality product with that friendly touch!
- Need the perfect gift for your sister or sister-in-law? Visit your local salon or spa and pick them up a gift certificate for a massage or mani/pedi!
- Not sure what to get that special guy in your life? What about stopping into the barber shop and getting them a full service shave and haircut? Guys love to be pampered occasionally too! You could also pick him up a car detail because who likes to clean their cars in winter!
- For the kids in your life, find an activity center like a place with big jumpy houses or a roller skating rink that you could get them a certificate too. I am not a huge fan of certificates but when it is for something the person will totally enjoy, like this AND with supporting their business. This time it is a win!
- Don’t leave yourself out either! Browse that boutique clothing store and buy a new dress or outfit for your holiday parties! I love boutique clothes because most people will not have that dress like they would if you bought it from a chain department store!
Now that you have worked up an appetite, go eat local!!
Support as much as you can today! The local small businesses are what help your community thrive!
