Almost everyone knows about the importance of shopping small. After all, there's a reason that "Shop Small" and "Shop Local" campaigns are so popular. In recent years, it's become an almost trendy thing to support local shops. This is a wonderful trend, but why is this? Here are 4 reasons you should shop small for the holidays.
1. Unique gift options
Best part of shopping small? You can often find one-of-a-kind handmade treasures! This means your gifts will naturally have a lot of thought go into them - something your gift recipient will love.
2. quality customer service
Small business owners take pride in their work. This means they will go to any end to make the customer happy. No waiting hours on hold or for the next available agent!
3. it's good for the community
When you support a local business, you’re also supporting your town, city, and neighborhood. Businesses pay sales taxes to the city and county they are located in.
4. you'll feel good
You will feel satisfied knowing you supported a local business owner who curates their products with love, rather than supporting a lifeless, big box store.
To wrap things up, there are plenty of reasons why you should shop small this holiday season. The most obvious reason is that local business owners will appreciate the business and your support for their community. Local businesses give back to the community and support local charities and that's just one positive impact of shopping small. And when you buy these products, you know that they're made with attention, love, and with care. So happy holiday shopping!
