Held every year at the start of the holiday shopping season, Small Business Saturday encourages consumers to shop locally and support community businesses.
As we all continue to struggle with the cultural and economic effects of the pandemic, it’s more important than ever to help local shops thrive. These businesses are owned and operated by our fellow citizens, friends, and neighbors, and their success directly impacts our communities.
Like other small businesses, your local insurance agent is an entrepreneur who invests their time and money back into their community. They contribute to local charities, sponsor youth sports clubs, pay local taxes—and it all helps build and strengthen the community you live in. Plus, they provide a needed service to their customers. So when you’re thinking of where to place your insurance business, consider buying locally.
Remember, the end of the year is a great time to take stock of your personal financial situation and make adjustments for the coming year. Why not set up time to talk to a local insurance agent to review your existing coverage? They can assess your current situation, make recommendations for your insurance needs, and provide rate comparisons.
Working with a local agent has other benefits. If you ever have a question or need help with an insurance issue, they’re only an office visit away. They’ll be more responsive to your calls, help you through any claim processes, and work with you to create a personalized insurance plan that’s tailored to your lifestyle.
We wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season. And if gift buying is part of your holiday tradition, remember to shop local!
