Supporting Small Business

In recent weeks another wave of news about companies being dangerously close to or actually going bust has dominated social media and the papers. HMV is in a precarious position, and Jessops has gone into administration, to name just a few. There are various reasons for companies failing to stay afloat and they vary from business to business. What remains constant throughout though is how sad these high street losses are. Putting aside for a moment the loss to customers and owners, we have to think of all of those who have lost their jobs and other businesses who have lost out when debts are unable to be paid.

This might seem like a rather negative post for what is usually quite a perky blog however today I wanted to remind you all that small businesses such as Precious Parcels and the wealth of other small businesses out there don't have PR companies and large budgets for advertising and aren't able to buy stock or materials in huge quantities to lower the overall cost. What we do have however is a fabulous close connection to our customers and this is one of the best things about being a small business.

Today's post is not just to thank you for our continued success but to ask all of you lovely supportive customers to spread the word about ALL of the small businesses that you love, to keep buying from us and to let us know if there is anything you would like to see. Here at PP we value your opinions and our focus is to work with you all to make the shopping experience the best it can be and continue supplying you with our quality handmade gifts and treats.

On a lighter note..... It is nearly the weekend folks so it is ok to treat yourself to cake to celebrate the fact :)
