Shop Small for a Big RewardNovember 19th, 2011 by Joan Paul
Celebrate and support the 2nd Annual Small Business Saturday on November 26th. Interestingly, this BIG idea to “SHOP SMALL” was created by a HUGE company. Thank you, American Express!
It’s a small business “response” to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There’s no setting your clock for some crazy hour to beat the mad rush to a “superstore”, or concerns about being trampled as you elbow your way through the crowds in hopes of purchasing the latest electronic device or, according to the media, the toy that your child “must have” before they run out!
Consider this. Get a good night’s sleep, wake up at a reasonable hour, enjoy your morning cup of coffee or tea and head out for a pleasant, unhurried and unharried day of shopping. With a Main Street populated by wonderful, independently-owned shops and boutiques, Essex certainly is a destination at the top of the list. And, of course, should you visit Essex, we do hope The Griswold Inn Store will be on your shopping list. We may be small but we have a large and distinctive collection of Goods & Curiosities.
Use your American Express card when you shop with us on Saturday, November 26. If you make a purchase of $25 or more you will receive $25 back on your following credit card statement. In order to qualify you must register your card before making your purchase, www.facebook.com/shopsmall. This offer is limited so we encourage you to register your card as soon as possible.
The Griswold Inn Store ~ Goods & Curiosities welcomes you on Small Business Saturday and every day of the week! Pledge to Shop Small this Holiday Season! We guarantee you’ll be richer for it.
