As the owner of a small business, Mockingbird Bay Resort, I totally appreciate the folks who choose to spend their hard-earned money here with us. So on this beautiful Thanksgiving Day, let me just say a big heartfelt THANK YOU to our awesome guests. Without you, we obviously would not be here.
I guess, I’m just trying to remind y’all this holiday season to look for a small business and spend your money there instead of somewhere else. The power of Local…and Community…and unique independent cottage industries is really cool — so instead of shopping at a giant big-box retailer or franchise chain store, think small.
Oh. And as much as I do appreciate American Express for all they’ve done to promote Small Business Saturday and bring awareness to this issue…If you’d really like to help out the little guy and small Mom and Pop shops, then don’t pay with a credit card at all. Pay with cash. That’d really help.
Thanks! …and Happy Thanksgiving everybody! 🙂
