Support Small Businesses This Holiday Season!

Shop small, it's a big deal!

Why Shop Small?

I know November has just started, but I want to put a bug in your ear. When you are making your plans for holiday shopping, consider supporting a small business this year!

  • Small businesses reinvest in their communities through job opportunities and sales tax revenue which can support schools and other local improvements, often on things you use every day like roads and parks.
  • Some businesses specialize in handcrafted items that can make for unique and memorable gifts.
  • When you support a small business, you’re supporting someone’s hard work and dream, allowing them to continue doing what they love!

What is Small Business Saturday?

Right after Thanksgiving, Americans hit the stores to kick off the holiday shopping season with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. In the middle of those two days is Small Business Saturday which started in 2010 and is gaining momentum. This year, it falls on November 29, 2014. Many small businesses will participate with special events and sales. Added bonus – you can avoid the chaos of the larger retailers!

What Does This Mean for Kimchi Kawaii?

Even though I don’t have a traditional brick and mortar store, I will still be celebrating both Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday with special deals in my Storenvy shop*.

  • I’m planning on doing a one day deal on Small Business Saturday so stay tuned! To keep up to date, like my Facebook page which has the most current updates.
  • This year, I’m participating in the Storenvy Cyber Monday sale. Kimchi Kawaii, along with participating Storenvy shopkeepers will be offering 30% off shop-wide on December 1st.

So in your holiday shopping plans, I hope you remember to support at least one small business this season. It really is a big deal to us!

*Kimchi Kawaii also sells on Redbubble and Zazzle and I’m pretty sure they will be running deals this weekend as well, but I don’t have control over what the discounts are. Another reason to follow the Facebook page as I’ll be updating there when I find out. 🙂
