Small business is the lifeblood of the American economy, which is why “shopping small” has become the signature day to support small businesses. It’s a great response to Black Friday, the often less-than-personal shopping event that has been dominated by large chain establishments. When you choose to purchase from small businesses, you have a greater exposure to unique products that are typically made by other small merchants.
Supporting small businesses keeps great jobs in the local economy and encourages entrepreneurs to follow their passion and take risks, bringing more options to a market crowded with generics.
Revel is proud to be a partner for small business, helping provide the tools necessary to make business owners lives easier and more efficient. This year, to celebrate small businesses, we’re encouraging you to shop at small businesses in your local community on Saturday, November 26. Revel will match your spend by discounting it off of your system; you can save up to $250!
