2796520Each year, the Saturday after Thanksgiving is proclaimed “Small Business Saturday”. Everyday millions of customers visit the large corporate box stores for good reason – they offer a wide variety of goods at a reasonable price. So I began to think, what does a small business like ours and others within our community have to offer that the big box stores don’t? I can think of many ways to answer this question but what really comes to mind are the other small business owners within our shopping mall (McCabes Crossing) that I have come to know. I think of Robin who owns Botanica next door to us and the beautiful works of art that come form her shop, simply amazing the talent that her and her team have. Or Ben who owns and operates Asian Paradise, his warm friendly smile as he greets each and every customer. When Ben stops by your table, it’s like you are the only customer in the restaurant at that moment and the food is exceptional. Each of these small business owners and many more bring a degree of customer service and knowledge that in my opinion cannot be matched by the box stores. We know our very livelihood depends on providing you, the customer, a superior product with exceptional customer service at the best possible price. We take great pride in being small. So this Saturday take a moment to support small business and see the difference yourself. On behalf of all the small business owners in McCabes Crossing, thank you for your support. “Shop Small”
