5 Reasons to Shop Small

Today is Small Business Saturday, Shopsmalland I’ve got 5 reasons why you should “shop small” with businesses like mine (Calligraphy Etc.)!

1.  Sometimes Less is More

No need to drive all over town or stroll down aisles and aisles in a big store to find the perfect gift.  We’ve already hand-picked a great selection of gifts just for you in our little shop!  Quality and value are important to us too, so you can rest assured that we’ve selected items with this in mind.

2.  Help a Neighbor

Shopping small supports local jobs.  Each time you purchase an item at a local store, you’re helping us provide a paycheck to a friend or neighbor (and sometimes in our case, a poor college kid)!

3.  Show Love to Your Community

Small businesses give back to the community.  We donate money and/or volunteer to benefit local charities, schools, churches and other organizations that YOU care about.  Shopping small allows us to keep pouring more into the community we share.

4.  Friendly is Better

At a small business like ours, you won’t be waited on by some random teenager who just “needs a job”.  Our employees are bright, friendly folks who genuinely want to help you!  Customer service is our priority, and that’s harder to find at larger stores.

5.  Support the Dreamers

Do you have a dream?  Well, small business owners do too!  Shopping small  helps keep the American Dream alive (and tells us that we’re doing a good job for you).
