Reruns Featured On Fox News For Small Business Saturday
Fox News came by Reruns to get our take on Small Business Saturday
TAMPA (FOX 13) – While the Black Friday frenzy may be winding down, Tampa Bay’s local businesses are gearing up for one of their biggest shopping days of the year: Small Business Saturday.
The American Express-sponsored shopping holiday is simple. Go out of your way to spend at local businesses, to keep them in business.
Last year, the company reported 95 million customers took part, spending more than $16 billion, up from $14.3 billion in 2014.
If you can find it at a big box store, there’s a good chance you can also buy it at a local business. You just have to know where to look.
“I have toy boxes, kitchens, I have furniture for babies,” said Alexandra Graham, owner of Reruns 4 Little Ones.
The store, off West Hillsborough Avenue is a consignment and retail boutique, selling products from infant to maternity.
“We’ve been in the Tampa Bay community for 10 years,” Graham said. “Being a Tampa-based business is great but I am also a mom-owned business.”
It’s not every day they can expect a line out the door.
“Small Business Saturday is our holiday,” Graham said. “There’s no way us small guys can compete with the big box stores. So, this is our opportunity to take what we can offer to the community.”
