It’s that time of the year again: Spring has sprung and the countdown to the summer holidays and festive season has begun.
What better way to kick off the new season than with some retail therapy? Before you swipe your card at the next multinational behemoth, why not opt to shop at a local small business and support our own talented entrepreneurs.
Here are 5 reasons why you should shop small:
• You’ll make a positive impact on the economy
• You’ll help create jobs in the community
• You’ll lessen the environmental impact of your purchases.
• Small businesses provide greater access to product diversity
• Small businesses offer that personal touch
And if that’s not enough, support a small business because you’re going to feel good about it! If you’re not sure where to start, take a look at a selection of hand-picked PayFast merchants below:
