Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday

Did you know when you shop at small businesses you are helping to support Canadian workers? Approximately 85% of employed Canadians work at small and medium sized businesses.

Small Business Saturday is a day to remember and celebrate different companies during the holiday season. We are a proud small business that was established in 1983 with one product. Our team now consists of under 30 employees who work together with the goal of growth and success. We take pride in supporting our community and similar businesses!

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday quickly approaching it is easy to forget to shop small. However, small businesses helped contribute 37.5% to Canada’s gross domestic product in 2018 alone... Therefore, when you support companies like ours, you are helping grow the economy. 

Another reason to shop small is to purchase unique gifts. With 86% of customers claiming supporting small businesses is important it shows that consumers want a unique experience. Finding rare or original products can be a challenging task during the holiday season, but it is a perfect opportunity to learn more about a small biz and what they offer.

With 66% of shoppers attempting to purchase from small businesses opposed to large online retailers this allows companies like ours to grow their brand and help consumers find the perfect gift. Although the holiday season may be a busy time, we encourage you to shop at small businesses this year and support them in the years to come.

Happy Holiday Season from the team at Ocean Sales!
