I came across a great article on News this morning. ‘Shop Small’ is a brilliant campaign developed to save our local small businesses.
We so strongly believe in this – the local smaller operators are the heart & soul of our community (this is what we’re all about!).
As American Express Australia’s managing director Rachel Stocks said small businesses were the “backbone of our society” and Australians need to be more supportive of them to ensure they can prosper.
Small Business Owners Deliver Superior Service
The Galaxy research found 58% of Australians believe small business helps give a community a sense of identity and it provides convenience for consumers.
And the feedback on smaller operators is positive – nearly one in two people (45%) believe small business owners deliver superior customer service”
So please consider supporting your local small businesses when you can.
Often run by dedicated families who won’t take your business for granted, offering a more personable experience and a lot of gratitude!
