YES...you can. Here’s how:
Everyone wants to shop local. Everyone understands the importance of local business to our community. We all want to save our friend’s restaurant. Or our neighbor’s boutique. But what percentage of your family Christmas shopping will actually go to support local business?
We get it. Amazon rocks. Their brilliant algorithms show you exact items of interest front and center on your page. Even offer a one click purchase and free shipping. It’s so hard to resist. We are all time deprived in this season of life so anything that solves a problem for us — while also making it easy to do — is our best friend.
Let’s make our local shops our new best friend. We’ve created a way to connect businesses trying to serve their community directly with those making purchases in an Amazon-like way.
BloNo Curbside Small Businesses is a Facebook page founded by Rhendy Bradshaw of RE-MAX Rising. It was developed as a resource to the community right after our local businesses were forced to shut down in the spring and shift operations to a curbside/delivery-only format of business. As we are heading into the holiday season – the most critical time of year for local businesses – they need our support more than ever. INSPYR Agency has partnered with Rhendy and the BloNo Curbside Small Business page to coordinate great gift ideas from business to consumer.
The countdown to Small Business Saturday has begun with the 12 Days of Christmas! Every day from now until Small Business Saturday, there will be a new theme posted every day to encourage gift ideas for all of your loved ones. From the men and women to the kids and even furry friends. Let us help you shop local. You can find the countdown here:
Businesses~ Post your best gift ideas! Show us how easy it is to purchase from you. And how to safely pick up curbside. Extra credit for providing it gift wrapped. :)
Community friends~ Give them a chance at the MAJORITY of your holiday business this year. Not just the one purchase on Small Business Saturday. It’s Small Business EVERY DAY! It has to be right now to keep us all moving in the right direction.
Let’s work together to end 2020 on the bright side of a community rallying behind their friends and local business owners to turn the cycle of COVID back around! We can do this, BloNo!
