A message from Carpet One, Newport
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy, local businesses donate two times as much to local charities.* Supporting a local business allows them to continue supporting charities and community programs locally.
Local businesses hire workers in their communities. In fact, Local businesses account for over 65% of all new jobs. A thriving local business can help to reduce unemployment in the Newport area.
“We are proud to be part of the Newport community and contribute as much as we can to making our community the best it can be,” said Richard Keller of Carpet One Floor & Home. “We welcome our neighbors and friends to visit us to see how they can get great value and selection from a local business.”
Carpet One Floor & Home is a locally owned flooring store in Newport. As part of the Carpet One Floor & Home cooperative, they are able to benefit from economies of scale such as lower product costs, but they remain independently owned and managed. As an independently owned business, Carpet One Floor & Home contributes to the local community in many ways – participating in community causes, employing local workers and contributing to the local economy.
Small Business Saturday occurs on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is day sponsored by American Express to spread awareness about the benefits of shopping at local businesses. With Small Business Saturday coming up on November 30, 2013, it is important to know that for every $100 spent locally, $68 stays in that community.
