Attention all consumers! Don't overlook the vital role that small businesses play in our economy. March 29th is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, and it's the perfect time to show appreciation for our favorite small businesses.
These businesses, handed down from generation to generation or newly started, offer superior customer service and take pride in their communities.
As consumers, there are several ways to show support for small businesses. First, shop locally and at small businesses to keep the economy thriving. Give the gift of a gift card from your favorite small business to encourage others to shop there.
- Improve their following by sharing their social media pages. Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising small businesses can get, so talk about them and recommend them to your friends.
- Remember to be a repeat customer as small businesses support local events and schools, too.
- According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, there are over 27 million small businesses in the United States.
- It takes long hours, hard work, and dedication to run a successful small business. From starting out to building and expanding, every owner strives for success.
So, let's show our appreciation for all the small business owners out there on National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. Use the hashtag #MomAndPopBusinessOwnersDay and spread the word about these incredible businesses. Let's keep our communities thriving by supporting our local small businesses.
