It’s that time of year again. You’ve taken down all your Halloween decorations and started planning who’s-bringing-what to Thanksgiving dinner this year. You’re sending out your holiday wish lists to friends and family, and maybe you’ve done a little bit of gift shopping already yourself. The biggest holiday shopping weekend of the year is coming around the corner with Black Friday on November 27th this year.
Since 2010, American Express has sponsored a new kind of holiday shopping extravaganza. Small Business Saturday, celebrating it’s 5th birthday this year, is a way for you to get out and show your support for the businesses that make your community unique.
This year, AmEx has introduced a new theme: Family Day! We at Pearls International feel that this is a great way to express what Small Business Saturday means, because so many of the small businesses around the country (ourselves included!) are family owned and operated. Unlike many of the big-box retailers, we have a unique perspective on how much you want to make this holiday season special for your family. Every day of the year, we strive to offer the best shopping experience to our customers. Behind the counter, we have coloring sheets to entertain your kids while you shop, and if you’re not quite done looking but your husband has gone a little dazzle-blind, he’s welcome to hang out on the ever-popular “man couch” — complete with television and magazines to flip through. Not to mention, at Pearls International, you get stress-free, 100% satisfaction guaranteed, warrantied jewelry and gifts, many of which are hand crafted here in our own workshop. That’s an experience you won’t find at the jewelry counter in a department store.
