SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
It’s a BIG deal y’all
Today is SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY. A day dedicated to supporting independent and small business. Obvs we at Jutah Studios feel that every day should be dedicated to this particular cause but we will take what we can get...
We have outlined three BIG reasons to support SMALL business...
1 - The money stays local
Grab a £3 coffee in the local cafe and your cash will go to the landlord, staff, owner and suppliers. Studies show that significantly more of your money (around 63p out of every pound spent locally) is then used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, and farms and so the positive cycle continues.
Buy the same coffee from Starbucks and watch your sterling disappear to an offshore account to line the pockets of a tax evading scoundrel. Terrible idea.
2 - Artists and Makers stand a chance of survival
Its no secret that being an artist or a maker is hard work. Many people do it in their spare time for the love of creating, dreaming of being able to give up that awful (insert mundane job role here). It’s a precarious old lifestyle for those that have taken the plunge and rely on their creative outlay to get by. Stand by your artists and makers, they make the world a better place.
3 - You can get something unique
A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term. A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based not on a national sales plan but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers guarantees a much broader range of product choices as well as staff that really care about the product they are selling. You could bag yourself something completely unique. Go on, stand out from the crowd.
