Whew, it was a long day but very fun. What I found most rewarding was to see so many of my regular customers coming in to say hello, browse a bit and eagerly get their Gifts To Go Smiley Face Buttons. Those buttons are kinda corny but not only did the Small Business Saturday shoppers receive a 10% discount on Saturday, they will receive a 10% discount on their purchases through the rest of this year!
And, the new business inside our retail incubator, Gift of Cheese, invited ABC 15 TV to come visit our humble incubator that we’re working to use as a springboard to bigger storefronts. The reporter who showed up with Angie Holdsworth – and she came with a wealth of knowledge about different business models in general and specifics of small business growth opportunities in the Valley of the Sun. Thought I’d share what she had to say.
It was a perfect day for a visit from an individual who covers business start ups and we are so grateful to have met her. Thanks, Angie! And, thanks to L Huber of Gift of Cheese for sending the invite that captured her attention.
