Today’s consumer environment is replete with big-box retail chains and multinational conglomerates. During the holiday shopping season, many of us are tempted to spend our money at these stores, forgetting that sometimes the very best bargains-both in terms of price and local impact-can be found at the myriad small businesses which pepper this nation. Indeed, one national survey has found that, when you shop at independent, locally-owned businesses, fully 52 percent of what you spend stays in your community, which in turn supports local organizations and services.
This Saturday, November 29, 2013, is national “Small Business Saturday.” Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to encouraging consumers to “shop small,” supporting small and independent locally-owned businesses and their greater communities. Although shoppers are often eager to complete their holiday shopping on “Black Friday” at large chains and big-box stores, it is vital to remember that by shopping small, consumers can boost their local economies and improve the lives of their neighbors.
The attorneys at Kelly | Dorsey, P.C., are dedicated to the success and prosperity of small, local, and independently-owned businesses. Indeed, we spend our days advocating on behalf of various small business in courts and before federal and State agencies. We make it our business to make ensure that local businesses are well-protected, well-represented, and well-prepared for today’s modern business climate. As such, we invite everyone to take advantage of this Small Business Saturday and to remember: shop small, and make a big impact.
