Ever stop going through the gift shops Perth offers, and just think to yourself - I should be supporting small? Sometimes it's just easier to shop from a big chain, isn't it? We've all heard the "support small" and "support local" messages loud and clear over the last few years, but why is it so important? Should we really be making small business a priority?
Well the answer is obviously yes!
Why Support Small?!
- Small businesses typically offer more personalised customer service. You can get to know the people behind the business, and they can get to know you and your needs better. We show up on our social media so you can get to know us, not just our brand. And you know there's a real person who actually cares behind all of the interactions you have with us. Whether that's commenting on a social media post, emailing us a question, or making an order!
Small businesses are often more versatile and creative with their products and services. They can often tailor their offerings to meet your specific needs. We have designs that you simply won't find anywhere else - there are gift shops Perth boasts, but we're the only place you'll find our handmade earrings! We make small batches of designs and can afford to be a bit quirky and different with our choices! If you're looking for a gift for someone who has everything, we can help!
Quality Over Quantity!
- Small businesses often focus on quality over quantity. They may not have the same selection as larger businesses, but they focus on creating quality products and providing quality services.
- Supporting small businesses helps to keep money in the local economy and supports the community. When you shop or use services from a small business, you are helping to create jobs and stimulating the local economy. Small business owners also tend to be passionate about supporting other small retailers, keeping that money in our local economy which has wide reaching effects!
- Small businesses tend to be more environmentally friendly than larger businesses. They typically use fewer resources and have less of an environmental impact. For instance we choose to use compostable mailers and carbon-neutral delivery options so that we know our footprint isn't impacting the Earth - most chain retailers just can't make the same claim!
