Small Business Saturday is one of the most successful shopping days of the year for small businesses. According to NFIB, in 2018 alone, almost $18 billion was spent at small businesses. That’s a lot of dough!
Most people (us included) will tell you how important it is to shop small. Small businesses make up a big chunk of the US economy (99.7%), according to Grasshopper small business statistics. As one of the most important shopping days of the year, why wouldn’t you want to support local business with your purchases?
At Three Brothers Bakery, we’ve been a small business in Houston for 70 years, part of the reason of our success is due to our loyal customers. There are so many times where we would not have survived if it weren’t for our customers–many of whom we see each week in our stores.
What makes it so rewarding to be a small business is the joy we get from giving back to our community. Again from Grasshopper Resources, did you know that small businesses donate over 200% more to non-profits than large companies? When your business is local, so is your heart–and we are so happy to have a heart and community in Houston, Texas.
