Good morning, you may or may not remember but last year Mission Repair participated in the “Shop Small” movement. In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The single day has grown into a powerful movement, and more people are taking part than ever before. This year, the big day is Nov 29.
We’re involved. We got a boatload of free tote bags, a few door mats, and some awesome signage for the front of our locations.
In fact, I was at home last night, flipping through my channel guide (I have DirecTV at home) and landed on channel 512. There’s an entire “Shop Small” Channel so I took this picture of my TV to blog about it!
I know that AMEX is a large business; but they are really pulling out off of the stops to get small businesses the recognition that they deserve and need. This time of year is huge for most businesses (Mission Repair included!) and thanks to everyone that joins the “Shop Small” movement that’s already begun.
Take care, Ryan
