The official Shop Small Business Saturday is November 24, 2019. Why are we writing about Shop Small Business in January? The idea of Shop Small Movement is to promote shoppers, small businesses, and civic leaders to come together to strengthen their community by supporting local businesses. Penny’s Gift Baskets, LLC loved the concept of supporting local small business we took the movement a step further and utilize their goods and services throughout the year.
We appreciate local small business and we try to utilize their services. Their unique products help our business to offer more diversified products, services, and highlight our regional flair. We find that these independent businesses take a different kind of care and quality in their product because their work reflects themselves. It’s a pleasure to support local small businesses.
The Allen Convention and Visitors Bureau Gift Basket is a great example of Shop Small. The popcorn (Allen Mix and Cheddar Cheese) is from Sassy Popcorn, the brownies (Texas Pecan and Cookie Dough) are from Elke’s Market Café, and chocolates from Sublime Chocolates are all small businesses in Allen, TX. These are small, independent, family owned,gourmet food businesses that help to make Allen unique. “Supporting independent businesses is substantially important to supporting what you love about a city”Foster Kamer.
We love to visit Goodies, Texas and Lanio’s Candies it feels like home. They are located in the heart of downtown historic McKinney, Texas. You are greeted at the door with the tantalizing fragrance of chocolate, friendly staff, and personalized service. Just ”Support each other.Why do you need a reason to do that besides the fact that it’s the right thing to do” Scarr and Los Franco.
This McKinney Themed Gift Basket was designed to welcome a new doctors office. We visited local businesses to purchase wine from Landon Winery, The McKinney Shop to select cool souvenirs,Loco Cowpoke Salsa Shop for an incredible selection of regional salsas, Mom& Pop for artisan popcorn, and Goodies of Texas. McKinney is one of the oldest thriving historic down towns in Texas. Visit, shop, eat, and support small independent businesses that dream big in your town.
