This year, Small Business Saturday is on November 28. It’s a day that encourages consumers to shop small and local. Since American Express started the initiative in 2010, eighty-eight million people have shown up to “shop small.”
In the outdoor power equipment industry, shopping small means to forgo the big box stores and take your business to the locally owned outdoor power equipment dealership in your area. In addition to supporting the community where you live, shopping local has other benefits.
Local outdoor power equipment dealers provide knowledge and services not found in big box retailers. For landscape contractors looking to make a significant investment in their next piece of equipment, that’s especially important.
So, why shop local for your outdoor power equipment?
