Small Businesses truly are the heartbeat of America. Small businesses also keep Galveston unique!
Did you know that 90% of all persons employed in the USA are employees of small businesses? When you support small businesses you are not only directly supporting someone’s dream but you are also supporting your own community. When you shop locally, approximately 67% of your dollar stays in our community – these dollars enable city improvements such as better roads and drainage, great education, employment, and so much more.
Small Business Saturday is the Saturday after Thanksgiving; this day is more than just shopping at local stores and looking for great deals – it’s about celebrating and sharing the small businesses that are part of our lives! Small businesses aren’t just places to shop, they also provide an environment for people to meet new friends, experience new things, to belong to something greater than themselves. In our eight years in business at Fit TRI Run, we have been the spark for change in peoples’ lives, the center where new friendships and relationships are formed, the community of support for happy times and tough times.
It’s the businesses and the people behind small businesses that make Galveston unique. Without year ‘round support from our own community, what would our town look like? Eeek! Let’s not think about it. Instead, let Small Business Saturday become your holiday shopping tradition! We encourage you to get out and explore your community! Find your unique gifts, experiences and celebrate small businesses like ours. Small Business Saturday just wouldn’t be a celebration without you!
November 25th, we invite you, your friends, and your family to Shop Small and share your favorite places by checking in or tagging on Social Media. We also invite you to be inspired and Shop Small year-round! Thank you for shopping locally!
