I have enjoyed meeting a tremendous amount of business owners that I would never have had the opportunity to meet without the organization. I have heard them discuss their best practices from the various meetings that are organized under the Shop Local umbrella and have implemented those that applied. The overall support of the group in my achieving growth in my business has been phenomenal and I plan to continue to participate fully to enjoy even more growth and camaraderie. Thanks to you and your team for the creation of the opportunities to network with other locally owned businesses.
SLR in it’s infancy, shared our business with the community, helped to promote us, attended our launch, and grand opening, and utilized social media on our behalf. THE SHOP SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY was brought to our attention through you, and we have all reaped the benefits of that single promotion over the years. You communicate with us in a way, that is more mentor than organization.
While we have not attended many meetings, we continually support and refer SLR to all new businesses we come in contact with. We are in awe of the growth of SLR, your tireless efforts on our behalf, and after 7.5 years of being small business owners, we consider ourselves a success and byproduct of being a small part of an ever growing small business community in a city that is booming. – Cindy Jones, Owner Savory Spice Shop
