I don't know about you but, at holiday time when I thumb through home decorating magazines, and when I see photos of houses decked out in holiday themes on my news-feeds and on Pinterest boards, I feel like such a slacker. Who has time and money to decorate the house for every stinkin' holiday? I love the way it looks and I wish I had the money and made the time for it but, honestly, is it that important? I've come to the conclusion that if it brings you happiness, it is important. And, it does bring me happiness. So, where's the happy medium between money and time for holiday decorating? Here! Right here on this blog. I found some really cute ideas that won't cost a fortune and won't take up a lot of your time. Happy decorating!
As I help prepare for and promote #shopsmall -- Small Business Saturday -- at Action Carpet & Floor Covering on November 29th, I'm reminded of the many things that smaller businesses such as ours offer that the large corporations just don't and, quite frankly, can't. Things like a genuine care for and interest in the local happenings. Many of the owners and employees at the small businesses you patronize are locals themselves -- have been for years. They are familiar with and can relate to your interest in what's going on in and around town which makes for nice conversation. They may have children who have attended the same school systems as yours. They may have an elderly parent in the same senior housing as your elderly parent. They may frequent the same local establishments and events as you. In other words, we dwell in the same small corner of the planet as you do and we care about many of the same people, places and things you care about. You can talk to us, get to know us personally and we can get to know you, too. Meeting you in person and getting to know you makes us want to go above and beyond for you and give you the extra little services that don't come from the big corporations.
Local small business owners like my boss, Kevin Blake, make several monetary and product donations throughout the years which stay in and benefit the communities we all live in. Local organizations, charities and causes that matter to you matter to them, too.
By keeping your dollars local you receive services and products from people like you who care about the same things you care about. It's our hope that you feel a relationship with us akin to friendship, and it's our desire to deliver extra special customer services to you that simply can not be found online or at the big box stores. It's hard to compete with the prices that the big box stores have to offer, we're not going to lie, but we do everything in our power to keep our prices fair and wiggle where there's room to wiggle. ;)
With all that said, we at Action Carpet & Floor Covering want to thank you, our neighbors, for 21+ years of your support and business. We wouldn't be here and our employees wouldn't be here if it weren't for you. On Small Business Saturday we'd like to give back by offering you 10% OFF your purchase when you schedule an estimate that day AND 18 Months 0% Interest Financing. (Qualified Buyers.)
Thank you for keeping it local.
