SHOP SMALL, SHOP LOCAL
“Bixby Knolls Small Business Saturday” is May 20th! That means it’s time to get out and support the shops, services and eateries that make up YOUR local business district!
American Express sponsors the Small Business Saturday in November (the day following “Black Friday”) but we figured “why wait until November” to do that again?
We all agree that every day is a good day to support our local businesses. And we all know how important it is for our local economy. AND we all know that a healthy, thriving business district is important for our neighborhoods.
SO…we want to invite everyone to “DISCOVER” a local business on May 20 and shop, dine, and/or use a service in the “greater Bixby Knolls area.” Take this specific day and time to meet our small business owners and spend some money in their place. Grab your family, friends, and neighbors….tell your employees, clients, and customers. It’s just that important to participate and contribute to the overall success of the area!
According to “Civic Economics: A National Summary Report,” for every $100 spent at locally owned small businesses and retailers, $48 will stay in the local economy. That is 48% of YOUR MONEY staying right here in YOUR COMMUNITY. Shopping local means more than running errands. It is supporting your neighborhood, your community, and your city. It was also reported by the Institute For Local Self-Reliance that supporting “locally owned businesses built strong communities by linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships.”
By supporting the businesses in Bixby Knolls, you are continuing to support positive change in the community. The neighborhood continues to be vibrant, your property values rise, and the ultimate sense of community pride continues to strive to be the highest in the city.
