Shopping Small, Local Businesses makes us HAPPY!
After completing an intensive training called 10,000 Small Businesses provided by Goldman Sachs* I, as owner of Two Friends, have a new appreciation for what it takes for entrepreneurs across our great country to thrive and be successful in this ever-changing economy. And as the holidays rapidly approach please know that for every dollar spent at a small business in the U.S., approximately 67cents stays in the local community. So when you Shop Small on during the holidays—and all year long—it can help add up to a big impact for the community and the families who work tirelessly to serve you in these small businesses!
If you are on St. Simons Island here are a list of some of our friends who own small businesses...we hope you choose to visit them too! They are all rock stars!
