As the spending power of the black community grows and the sustainability of black-owned businesses decline, the solution has been found through the partnership between In the Black and The Black Chambers of Commerce; Daily Deals for black businesses. “We saw a need in urban black communities across the U.S.” says Marcus Burrell, COO. “There was a strong disconnect between resources being provided and actual business success, so we bridged the gap,” he continued.
The partnership between the US Black Chamber of Commerce will make bridging the gap a little easier. In the initial launch city, Detroit, this gives In the Black an exclusive partnership with over 500 Michigan Black Businesses. InTheBlack.org will expand to 7 more cities in the second quarter of 2013.
Consumers will enjoy deals from up to 90% off the best of Detroit’s bakeries, events, restaurants, spas, salons, retail shops, tours and many more. And the best part of “buying In the Black” is that a portion of profits will be donated to the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce to support the continued growth of small businesses.
