Small Business Saturday has been celebrated since 2010, but with Black Friday and Cyber Monday being the two major days for deals Saturday can easily be forgotten. However, living in South Florida where small businesses dominate the space, it’s time to share why Small Business Saturday (SBS) is important to South Florida.
Supporting the American Dream
It’s no secret that South Florida is a melting pot, with people flocking from all over the world. Whether you’re an immigrant or a native to the U.S. we all have a dream to have a happy life. Take your local restaurant owner for example. By supporting their business not only on SBS, but on other days throughout the year, you’re helping to keep the dream alive and support the local community…so keep it going.
Giving Flare to the Community
Who wants to always eat at the same old chain restaurant or shop at the same five stores? Local and small business give your community a unique edge, which can ultimately add not only diversity to your community, but beneficial things like upping the property value. In today’s world people celebrate things that are different.
Collect Points at the Places You Love
If you have a rewards card, a neat feature is being able to earn points at local retailers. Many card issuers run specials to earn more points during Black Friday weekend and lucky for you, Small Business Saturday will be celebrated that weekend. See what local retailers are on the rewards list and support while you earn!
Keep Your Money Local
By spending your money at small business within the community you’re keeping your money local. The positive side to this is that in return, your money can eventually be put back into the community when it comes to taxes. Did someone say paved sidewalks and new playgrounds?
