The holiday season is full of days dedicated to shopping. Whether it’s Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday or Super Saturday, this is the busiest time of year for retailers and consumers alike, and everyone is inundated with advertising, coupons and deals.

In talking to many small business owners, I know that getting your holiday shopping completed isn’t just about which store has the best deals. It’s about finding that perfect item and supporting your small business community. After all, what better way for small businesses to take on the big brands and rally together? Shopping small creates a robust and loyal community of like-minded online store owners.

Why #ShopSmall Matters

Small businesses added more than 100,000 jobs to the economy in November 2014 alone, and studies show that the health of small businesses is critical to the health of the economy. Shopping small is more of a civic duty than anything else, especially for those whose livelihood depends upon it. Buy from a small shop, allow them to invest in and grow their business, and you’ll be contributing to the growth of the economy – not to mention promoting the same kind of #shopsmall attitude that will boost your own revenues as well.
