All of us at Gravity encourage you to shop “small” on November 28 for Small Business Saturday. It’s a great way to show your support for the independent businesses that make our communities such a great place to live. Your favorite street in the world probably wouldn’t be that way if it wasn’t for the small businesses that give it such character and richness.
Small business owners are the reason we started Gravity Payments. They are the ones who provide so much value to our communities, but often don’t get the treatment they deserve. They encapsulate the spirit of what the “American Dream” is all about and give their blood, sweat, and tears to accomplish it. We knew the credit card processing industry was unfair and unfriendly for small business owners, so we created our company to try and change that. We exist to support them, fight for them, and help make their lives just a little bit better so they can achieve incredible success.
Make sure to mark your calendars for November 28 and show your community how much you care and value these independent businesses by supporting them during Small Business Saturday.
For those who own small businesses, we found that American Express’ Small Business Saturday website is a great promotional tool. There you will find other businesses participating in your area, events your business can join like Scavenger Hunts, #ShopSmall Selfies, or a Kick-off Breakfast. You can also find promotional materials to hang up in your shop, send to customers via email, or post on your social media platforms. For more information, go to shopsmall.americanexpress.com.
