We all know about the crazy lines and Black Friday deals offered by major retailers the day after Thanksgiving. Some big box stores have even decided to open on Thanksgiving to try to get a jump on their competition.
While we wish them well, our focus is on helping to support locally-owned small businesses right here in Rochester. After all, when you spend money at the big chain stores, your dollars leave our community and help support wherever they are from. When you support locally-based retailers, you support your friends and neighbors and more of your dollar stays right here to help build our local economy. In challenging economic times, we like the sound of that and we hope you do too.
Small Business Saturday is on November 29th this year and provides an opportunity to support local businesses. At Vittorio Menswear and Tuxedo we’ll have special deals to help you cross things off your holiday shopping list. The nice folks at American Express have even pitched in with an offer to provide a $10 credit on your statement if you register your American Express card for the Small Business Saturday promotion and make a purchase of $10 or more at a participating small business like ours. That’s basically $10 off anything you like in our store, compliments of Amex.
If you’re really looking to maximize your savings, use that credit in combination with some great sale prices we’re offering or check in on your mobile device at our store for some even better offers. Did we mention we have free WiFi at the store for all you tablet fans who want to stay connected?
