We’re a small business. Many of our clients and South Main neighbors are small businesses, too. That’s why we have a warm spot in our hearts for Small Business Saturday—the shop small event of the year. It’s November 30, and all of us at inferno intend to do our part to support small locally owned businesses. We hope you’ll join us.
If you’re out and about that day, you may bump into us. We’ll probably be browsing the comics at Maggie’s Pharm, trying on Santa suits at The Fun Shop, or checking out the Christmas tree bling at Dan West Garden Center.
Our fashionistas might be compiling their wish lists at The Ivory Closet or The Attic. And, of course, they’ll be scoping out the chic, handmade frames at Eclectic Eye*.
inferno’s foodies might indulge at the new Phillip Ashley Chocolates, get stuffed at the Little Cafe Eclectic, order a make-your-own quesadilla at Young Avenue Deli. And the bakers and crafters will hunt for Christmas inspiration at Mary Carter Decorating Center and Yarniverse.
A couple of us will be working off that turkey dinner at Fitness Kickboxing or Josh Henderson's Boot Camp at NBS Fitness.
If you own a small business, this day can give you a big boost. According to a 2012 Consumer Insights Survey, shoppers spent $5.5 billion at small businesses during this event last year. To take advantage of it this month, check out these stories and ideas we helped to put together for the Small Business Center at fedex.com*.
*FedEx and Eclectic Eye are clients of inferno.
