When you support a small business you are supporting a big dream.
You are not simply buying from a small business, you are investing in someone’s dream.
Each small business is birthed from an idea. From a spark and desire to blaze a path that has yet to be made! In addition to supporting a dream, you are investing in your own community. According to independentwestand.org every $100 spent in a local small business, $68 of it goes right back into the community enriching lives and creating success!
The entrepreneurs in your town put their heart and soul into their business which transforms your community.
It is not just a job to pay the bills, it is a dream, a part of them built brick & mortar and online for the world to purchase.
Local entrepreneurs are not just looking to make a profit, but they desire to share their passion. To give of their craft. To bring joy through each product and every transaction. Each local transaction has the potential to transforms your own community into a thriving place to live and raise a family.
One small purchase this Small Business Saturday will make big dreams a reality for so many.
When supporting small businesses remember the smallest purchase, just one encouraging comment on Facebook, sharing a local business with just one friend can make all the difference for your local small business owners. Your efforts to support local are noticed and gratefully appreciated.
Spend the day in your local town shopping small businesses that can only be sustained by you.
