Buying beauty products from large department brands can be an expensive and tiresome experience. If you want to forego fighting the crowds in large stores, buying from small businesses can be a wonderful alternative.
Here are the 8 top reasons why we think you should start buying from small beauty companies during your next cosmetics splurge.
- Enhancing Your Local Economy
Supporting a local company will boost the economy within your community. This will make your city a more stable area where culture can securely flourish. Local companies create more jobs in your area, lowering the unemployment rate. It feels good to give back to people in your town that you can connect with when you walk into their shop.
- Above and Beyond Customer Service
Small businesses tend to provide much better customer service than large department stores because they are more personal.
Many small businesses use programs like Gloss genius solutions, which make buying and booking an easier process for you as a customer. It’s easy to call your local store and get to a representative quickly, rather than be put on hold through corporate.
- Deals! Deals! Deals!
Buying from large companies can be very expensive, especially when it comes to beauty products if they’re designer brand. Small businesses often offer the same products for a much lower price.
They also tend to offer stellar bundles of products, so you get more for your money, especially around holidays. We love deals that help us look good without breaking the bank, and we’re sure you do, too. You might be able to find some around the corner.
- Unique Specialty Products
Some shops make their own products too! These are products that you won’t be able to find in larger stores, and that makes them unique to the shop.
Many of these products have natural ingredients and are made locally. You can get an insider glimpse into how these products were made by asking the in-store experts. You can’t get these anywhere else, and they make great, unique gifts!
- Small Businesses Give Back
Small businesses are more likely to get involved with where you live. Many small businesses sponsor local teams and fundraisers for schools and other programs. They enhance and improve your community just by being a part of it. By buying locally, they might donate to your club, or buy one of your products.
- Get Your Products Faster
While large businesses may have more in their inventory, smaller stores can typically get harder to find products faster. This is because small businesses have direct contact with vendors.
If you’re looking for a Fit for beauty Health product that is out of stock, small businesses are able to have it shipped right away instead of waiting for the next company shipment. This makes both you and the business happier. It’s just great customer service!
- Small Businesses Brighten Your Town
Small businesses create a vibrant shopping district in your local community. Their presence enhances the beauty of your local downtown and attracts tourism. Small businesses make your community unique and special. Without them, you’d only be able to shop at chains and buy the same products as everyone else.
- A Peaceful Buying Experience
Beauty department stores are often crowded, noisy, and hectic. We know how stressed we tend to get when entering beauty stores. Nobody likes to stand in line for an hour just to buy a lipstick.
If you want a more peaceful buying experience, a small store is the way to go. They are often less crowded, and small business owners go the extra mile to make you comfortable.
