Small Business Sampler: Go Small This Fall

The Sevier County Public Library System (SCPLS) is hosting an event for small businesses in Sevier County. ‘Go Small this Fall’ will be held during the Small Business Sampler event at the King Family Library, 408 High Street, Sevierville on November 2 from 10:00 am-3:00 pm.

Small business owners from crafters/artists to vendors of apparel, jewelry and other accessories and all small businesses in between are encouraged to call and reserve a space (includes table and chair; some spaces have an area for clothing racks or other display units) in one of the three meeting rooms in the library. Space is limited and will be filled on a first come/first serve basis. There will be no charge for the space and vendors will be able to promote, sell and share information about their business’s products and services.

In addition, small business owners will have the opportunity to host giveaways for their services and products. Refreshments will be provided for vendors and on-site food trucks will also be available. Small business owners who reserve a space will also be eligible to enter drawings for 30-minute complimentary sessions (to be scheduled at later date) with the following:

• Ralph Hickman, Accountant
• Greg Johnson, Investment Counselor
• Charlie Johnson or Alex Johnson, Lawyers

According to information from the American Express Shop Small website, small businesses with less than twenty employees account for 89.5% of all registered businesses in the United States! The upcoming Small Business Sampler will allow you to meet new, potential customers as almost 48% of consumers who attend small business events reported that they visited a small business that was totally new to them.

A main reason that customers prefer shopping small and local retailers is the unique product selections that are available. Customers believe that small business events have a positive influence on the community. Monies spent with small businesses remain in the community at the rate of $68 out of every $100 spent while only $43 stays in the community when shopping non-local businesses.

Take this opportunity to build awareness and grow your business by calling 865-453-3532 for additional information and/or to reserve your space for the event. You may also visit in person at the Circulation Desks at one of three libraries, King Family, Seymour Branch or Kodak Branch Libraries, to reserve your slot for the Small Business Sampler on November 2 at the King Family Library. The event will be open to the public so encourage your friends and acquaintances to come and shop that day.
