Have you heard of Small Business Saturday? We’re participating in this great event on Saturday November 27, and we want you to be part of it, too. We’re offering a 20% discount to people that come into our store. We’re also offering 10% off to our online shoppers. We firmly believe in shopping and buying from local and family owned American businesses, and there’s no better way to do it than with Lighting Concepts!
What’s the story behind Small Business Saturday? Well, we want to encourage people to buy from the local businesses all around them. Malls get a boost on Black Friday, and online retailers get a boost on Cyber Monday. Small Business Saturday is the day you should go out and support local businesses and thank them for creating jobs that can help boost your local economy. (Fortunately, if you can’t get out to our location, you can still take advantage of our great service online!)
Here are some great reasons to shop locally on Small Business Saturday:
-For every $100 spent at local small businesses, $68 actually returns to the community in some way. (Through things like payroll and taxes.)
-Small businesses employ half of all private sector employees.
-Small businesses represent a huge 99.7% of all employer firms.
-Small businesses have generated 69-80% of new jobs over the last ten years.
Happy Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday from all of us here at Lighting Concepts!
