Happy Holidays and thank you for shopping small this holiday season! The “Shop Local” message is getting out there, Scott and Peggy owners of Fleet Feet know it is folks like you that run with our groups, come to our events and support your local community that are making that happen.
The great people that help you each and every time you call the store, stop in the store or reach out to us via email or social media are all LOCAL, they all decided to make beautiful Bend their home.
Local businesses have so much to offer! GREAT customer service, a friendly smile and for most a long lasting friendship in the community. We also are able to offer ONLINE SHOPPING through our localized website. We can offer to you everything you need, shipping straight to the front door, gift cards and during the holiday gift wrapping at no extra charge.
How do small businesses keep the momentum going all year round? It is the biggest challenge we face. Many consumers don’t think twice before hitting the “buy” button on a mega-online-retailer’s website. This year, think twice about where to spend your hard-earned dollars. If you are willing to spend a few dollars more (and more often than not, you won’t), it will be offset by the customer care, unique inventory, higher quality and community reinvestment that small businesses provide. Try to focus on value rather than the lowest price because small businesses deserve to be part of everyone’s routine.
