An event, grand opening, anniversary or re-opening is an important scope for all small businesses. It’s the perfect opportunity to have some fun and get involved with your community. For many small businesses, these events are a critical part of their long-term success. They also encourage consumers to “Shop Local” and support small businesses in their communities.
For locals who live in these communities, these events are an ideal moment to drop in with friends and family members to find out who these new businesses are, where they are located, what products or services they have to offer and to show your support as a consumer.
