This Saturday, November 30th is Small Business Saturday, a tradition that American Express started only a few years ago, but has gained enough steam to project close to 5 billion dollars in consumer spending last year as a result. It started as a way to empower people to make a difference in their own community, giving their dollars and support to their own town, or one that means something to them. It has since grown to be that and so much more.
At The Grommet, we stand behind our makers and the majority of them are also small businesses. From Brooklyn, NY to Ann Arbor, Michigan to Bozeman, Montana, our Grommets are being made and manufactured in these towns where people live, work, play and call home. So this year we’re letting our Community know that by shopping for their favorite products on The Grommet, they’ll be supporting people all across the U.S., as well as The Grommet itself. We too are a small business located outside Boston, in a town called Somerville, MA. We’re proud to be located in this “maker dense” neighborhood and do our part every day to give back to the town that has given us so much.
