Whenever I go to a new town for vacation, work, or seeing some friends or family, I love to go to the local Mom and Pop shops. Whether it is a boutique, restaurant, coffee shop, or bookstore, I like to support local businesses whenever I can. Did you know Mom and Pop shops generate almost 70% of new jobs in the United States? Every year on March 29th, we celebrate the more than 27 million small businesses around the country to appreciate all their dedication and hard work that comes with running a small business.
How to celebrate National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day
1. Visit the shops
Stop into your local businesses and start shopping there! Even better, leave a review for the small business by filling out their surveys or give a review on Google, Yelp, or their social media.
2. Promote their social media
The best part about this one is that it’s free. Sharing their page on social media with your friends and family increases their activity, and more people will learn about them.
3. Say thank you
If there’s a small business you often frequent, write them a thank you note. It takes mounds of effort to run a small business, and a simple thank you can go a long way.
Mom and Pop shops help make shopping for whatever it may be more personal and provide a welcoming environment. Customers form special bonds with the employees and owners of small businesses often, creating further appreciation between the customer and the business. More times than not, small businesses give back to their communities, helping boost your local economy. Stop into your favorite Mom and Pop shop today, even if it’s only to say thank you!
