From Black Business Month to Back to School promotion and events, there was much to celebrate in August. Enjoy this quick read to stay up to date with Wish Local and see a sneak peek of what’s coming up soon.
Celebrating Black Business Month
August was National Black Business Month in the US, and we would like to recognize all of our Black-owned businesses by saying Thank You for making a difference with Wish Local.
Black-owned small businesses have long faced hardship due to systemic racism, and in an effort to help do our part to respond to the inequity, Wish Local launched the Wish Local Empowerment Program, its own investment fund to support underrepresented entrepreneurs in the United States.
Livestream: Black Friday and Cyber Monday are less than 100 days away! Is your store ready?
Join us on Facebook Live Thursday, September 17th at 10am PST as we discuss How to Maximize Your Holiday Sales this season. We’ll be going live in the Wish Local Official Facebook Group to chat about what products will be trending for the 2021 holiday season and sharing sales & marketing strategies for small businesses. We’ll be answering questions like should you run a Black Friday sale? If so, how long should it be? Should you run ads (given other retailers will be spending a lot)? Plus, one attendee will be the winner of our $500 Wish Wholesale credit prize! We hope to see you there.
*Disclaimer: $500 Wish Wholesale credit only applicable for eligible stores
