Help Us Support Small Business
How you can Support Small Business Even in the Smallest Ways
Small businesses are privately owned corporations, partnerships, and individuals and these businesses pepper our national landscape as well as our local communities. Small business owners work tremendously long days to survive and compete with the leviathans of big business.
Regardless, these often family owned businesses and sometimes just mom and pop shops strive to provide exceptional customer service and go out of there way because their reputation and possibly survival depends on it.
When you support small business, you are helping someone achieve or maintain their dreams. Starting a small business before it gets off the ground involves many hours and effort that goes uncompensated. There are no immediate rewards.
2020 to say the least, has had a devastating effect on small businesses in more ways than one. Despite the challenge, many independent small business owners have been able to push through the pressure and losses to barely stay afloat.
As a small business ourselves, we at Beyond Box Gifts have committed ourselves to doing what we can to promote and support small businesses and ask for your help.
As we search for the most unique gift ideas online, we will be featuring small businesses in the offer box under each product every chance we get. Sometimes, what we find is not offered by small businesses and we can’t. However, if we find a small business offering we can use, we will feature it.
Many people have preferences as to where they buy from. We get that and will continue to offer choices in each product description. However, we ask that you at least click the links or ads of our featured small businesses and give them some traffic. If you like what you see, and think you can trust them, go ahead and make the purchase.
We are working diligently to revamp our offers to put small business first. Please be patient while we make this transition and move forward.
