Today is Small Business Saturday, the day designated for consumers all across the country to patronize small, independent businesses. There are several reasons why you want to choose small businesses first: small businesses are the primary drivers of growth in this country – did you know that small businesses are responsible for over 2/3 of all new job creation?
Next, small businesses can give you a level of personalized service that the large chain stores just can’t match. We hear this from our customers all of the time: they may have tried shipping their packages through the local Office Depot or Staples station only to discover that when they had questions, there were no answers. Employee turnover at chain retail locations is perpetually pretty high – one customer who’d had a fragile shipment shatter due directly to inadequate packing materials was told that the employee at fault had only worked there for 2 days! Yet this employee was trusted to have the expertise to package and ship a fragile item worth thousands of dollars!
At Boston Pack and Ship, that’s not how we operate. Like every small business, we understand that our customers always have another choice. That’s why we go above and beyond to provide the very best level of service we can. Our attention to detail is a direct result of long hours of training: you can rest assured that when you give your packages to a Boston Pack and Ship employee, they know how to handle it properly! Our custom crating service and high quality shipping boxes add an enhanced layer of protection to all of your items.
Small Business Saturday is being celebrated throughout Boston. We strongly encourage you to get out and explore all of the fantastic small businesses Boston has to offer. You’ll be glad that you did!
