First, there was Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, then the weekend filled in and extended all the way through Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday.
At dogIDs, our favorite day of this weekend is Small Business Saturday. It’s a day to shop small and a good reminder to support the businesses we love. Supporting small or locally owned businesses funnels your hard-earned money back into your community, creates jobs, and helps keep these passionate businesses going.
Shopping Small isn’t limited to the coffee shop on the corner or the bookstore down the street. Small businesses and retailers that operate online are often overlooked because you can’t see their size. While you can walk down Main Street in your hometown and know which businesses are local and which are chains, it’s harder to be sure from behind a computer screen.
This Small Business Saturday, shop small with us.
dogIDs is a small business in size and in mindset. Our team of 13 humans and 6 dogs work diligently every day thinking of ways to best serve you and your dog. We consider our size an advantage because it allows us to provide the high-quality, personalized and custom products you love.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and on being able to give back to the dogs who need our help most. This is why we partner with rescues across the country and other organizations working to improve the lives of dogs. The dog lovers of the world are our community, and shopping small with dogIDs helps us continue to advocate and create on behalf of all dogs.
Once your Thanksgiving feasts are finished, grab a latte from that shop on the corner and join us online. Give your furriest family members another reason to be thankful.
What is your favorite part of the Thanksgiving weekend?
