We will be the first to say that, more than likely, we won't be getting anyone looking to put a Aqua Pump underneath the Christmas tree this year. However, Small Business Saturday means so much more than a gift; it means supporting a community and keeping money local.
An interesting fact courtesy of the 3/50 Project website:
1. For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures.
What does this mean? It means that more of our hard earned money stays and helps support the communities we live in. As a family owned business for over 40 years, we understand the importance of the community and it's support.
When you're a small, family owned business, your customers are your shareholders and the business they give to you is important for survival in today's society.
So while we know you might not head to Aqua Pump's Stafford CT location for a pump, softner solution, water treatment supplies or gift certficate for any of our other products or services, we hope that everyone stops by some of the local businesses within their community to help support them.
It doesnt matter where your community is, Small Business Saturday is for all of us who truly love the towns and cities and the small businesses within them.
