A Large number of customers approaching for Small Business Saturday
The time has come to start your holiday shopping. Over the upcoming several weeks, up to 166 million consumers are anticipated to make some purchases between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
On November 26, a large number of customers flocked to Richmond to support small businesses.
At Bee Charmed, business was booming. A large number of shoppers visited the store to browse the 90 local artisans’ handcrafted wares. Michael Rand is one such seller.
The furniture you buy today at most stores is genuinely just extremely flimsy; it doesn’t survive very long; it’s really just for show, said Rand. “I love to find vintage furniture that would otherwise be thrown away or destroyed,” she said.
Both the customer and the retailer benefit from the holiday shopping season. The consumer can save money while also assisting local residents, many of whom are enthusiastic about the goods they are selling.
It matters to us whether you purchase a dining room set or a pair of earrings, according to Rand.
The holiday, in Rand’s opinion, is also an excellent opportunity to remind people of the advantages that many small businesses have over big-box retailers.
The salespeople are the actual vendors who work in the store, so we want you to view all of our products, Rand said. “We have white glove delivery out of our store and we have one on one attention with the sales people,” he added.
