Shindigz (http://www.shindigz.com) today announced its participation in this year’s Small Business Saturday, taking place on November 29, 2014. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to strengthening the community by supporting local small businesses.
Shindigz is offering a discount to small businesses on personalized decorations and promotional items that stores can use to attract and reward customers. Shindigz also offers 24-hour turnaround on personalized items, so last-minute shoppers can receive their decorations and supplies in time for Small Business Saturday on Nov. 29th. Store owners can place their orders at http://www.shindigz.com/SBS. Shindigz is also sponsoring a “Shindigz Loves Small Businesses” sweepstakes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, where customers can enter the name of their favorite small business to win a decorating kit for the store, as well as a Shindigz Ultimate Holiday Party Pack for themselves.
Now in its fifth year, Small Business Saturday serves as the ceremonial kickoff to the holiday shopping season for small businesses across the United States. In 2013, nearly 1,500 Neighborhood Champions rallied local businesses and created events and activities to drive shopping at small businesses around the country. The day was also championed by elected officials in all 50 states and Washington D.C., including President Obama who took his daughters shopping at a local bookstore.
Shindigz recognizes the importance of supporting small businesses for the jobs they help create and the culture they instill in local communities. According to the U.S. Small Businesses Administration, as of 2012, small businesses nationwide accounted for 64% of net new private-sector jobs created and represented 99.7% of all employer firms.1
