Here at Grommet, we’re thrilled to shine a light on hard-working small business owners all across the country. These Makers employ American workers and stimulate local economies in the cities and towns we call home.
But not everyone knows why “shopping small” is so important.
Here are 3 specific reasons why supporting independent Makers is so important.
1. Your dollars have a more powerful and direct impact.
With the massive corporations that dominate the shopping landscape today, it can be hard to know where your dollars are going. Sadly, you’re all too often contributing to a greedy CEO’s inflated salary. (And helping them buy a second mega yacht!)
When you buy from an independent Maker, you’re quite literally helping to put food on their family’s table. That’s a BIG deal. Unlike the Amazons and Walmarts of the world, the entrepreneurs Grommet works with keep track of every sale. They know when you buy from them and they appreciate every dollar you share with them.
2. You’re getting a higher quality product.
It’s no secret that the quality of goods has plummeted in recent years. Too often, it’s “How can we make our product cheaper?” rather than “How can we make our product better?”
Grommet Makers don’t think like that. They are laser-focused on producing top-notch products that their customers love. Why? Because they know and appreciate every customer, unlike the giant corporations that only care about their bottom line.
3. You’re creating American jobs.
Many Grommet Makers proudly manufacture their products in the United States and employ American workers. Did you know nearly half of all jobs in the U.S. are with small businesses? That’s over 60 million workers!
When you buy from a Grommet Maker, you are quite literally helping the economy grow. When our country’s small business owners thrive, our country thrives, too!
