Well, Small Business Saturday 2012 has officially come to an end, and I regret that I didn’t make it out to any stores. But I don’t need American Express’s $25 incentive to shop locally owned retailers. They are my faves all year long. I love to give them my business, and I love to promote them right here on momsguidetosandiego.com.
I bet you don’t know this, but some of the cool things you might purchase at “big box” stores like Bed Bath & Beyond and Babies R Us also benefit small business owners. Check these out…
So how does purchasing something from a national company help small business owners? Well, in the case of these Elmo-themed coffee table and grocery cart covers, they were conceived, created and sold by my friends and neighbors who own ABC Fun Pads. And while these adorable products are sold at Sears, they are also sold right out of my neighbors’ home office.
And since I have such great connections, I’ve scored one of each product to give away. Ahhh, the benefits of knowing small business owners. 🙂
