Why shop small?

Small businesses deserve some extra love! For starters, they make a major economic impact. As of 2022, there are over 33.2 million small businesses in America, accounting for 99.9% of all companies in the country! This represents a 12.2% growth over the past five years alone (Oberlo, SBA). Aside from the economic benefit, when buying from small businesses, you’ll usually find better customer service, higher quality products, and a more diverse selection compared to a big box store. Small businesses aren’t only found online; they are all around you! Small, local stores are highly beneficial to their communities. Other than the creation of jobs, these businesses often give back to the neighborhood through donations and charitable acts. Forbes has reported that, in 2017, 75% of small businesses donated to charity. A 2019 report by SCORE points out that small businesses were 250% more likely to donate than large businesses. Shopping small affects not only the quality of your purchase and buying experience but also helps local communities in the long run! No matter the time of year or what you’re looking for, a small business could be the answer to your buying needs.
