It’s no secret that COVID-19 related closures and restrictions have impacted our country’s small businesses in numerous and challenging ways. This pandemic has thrown hurdles in the path of nearly every small business owner, constantly testing their ability to profitably adjust their business model and stay afloat. Although all business and economic stimulation are positive during this time, small businesses offer a crucial aid to local, state, and national economies.
With the holiday season now in full swing, it’s more important than ever to keep our small businesses top of mind when tackling our shopping lists and here’s why. According to the American Independent Business Alliance (AIBA), when you shop local, approximately 48% of the cost of your purchase is recirculated back into the local economy. When you shop at a chain store, that number drops to only 14%. Instead of taking your hard-earned dollars to a billion-dollar chain store, think about how beneficial it would be to invest them in your local economy and help support a small business owner’s family. We can all agree that every dollar helps, especially around holiday time during a pandemic.
With that in mind, here is a helpful guide of local stores in Southeast Michigan that are having terrific sales this Black Friday. Happy shopping and Happy Thanksgiving!
