Why wait to fight the crowds on Black Friday? Shop Small First on Pink Friday to support small businesses!
Pink Friday is almost here, and this is your moment to shine as a small business owner!
Pink Friday is a small business spin on Black Friday to remind people to #ShopSmallFirst and support their own local businesses!
Created by our friends over at The Boutique Hub, Pink Friday - 18 NOVEMBER 2022 - is one HUGE day to #ShopSmallFirst– before Black Friday and before the big guys roll into town.
And the best part? Any retailer can take part in this shop small event!
“We know small businesses and the boutique retail industry have been hit hard this year. These stores often get overlooked on Black Friday, but these are the real businesses we need to be supporting this year. By creating Pink Friday and positioning it the week prior to Black Friday, we’re able to celebrate those businesses this holiday season and give them their own weekend to shine. If you are looking for the best shop small event for retailers, this is it!”
– Ashley Alderson, CEO, The Boutique Hub
