Local Organic Salon Thread & Sugar Partners with Giant Costco
Membership warehouse club Costco thinks big in small places by partnering with local businesses in offering their gift cards usually at a 20-33% savings.
In a dramatic shift from the perception many have of large retail chains putting small local companies out of business, Costco paves the way for change in its innovative efforts in working together with them and boosting their local economies.
Steve Bisla, owner of the Standard, an upscale Fresno restaurant which has also struck a deal with Costco says “I was very pleased with my experience with Costco and saw a dramatic increase in new customers” and “in regards to competitive position and recognition it definitely helps when thousands of Costco customers are walking past our gift card stand and recognizing the Standard”.
Maysoon Salah, owner of the ‘eco-hip beauty’ salon Thread and Sugar says “the efforts Costco is taking to work with small business is a fabulous opportunity considering the foot traffic and quality of clientele they have” and commented how she loves the way it “allows consumers to shop small in big places; staying loyal to local businesses, helping to improve the local economy while enjoy the savings big retailers can provide.”
Asked about her decision to forego working with Groupon or LivingSocial to partner with a large corporation Maysoon said “Finally we’re beginning to see a ray of hope for small businesses that are looking for effective advertising with the promise of high volume sales. We thought daily deal sites was the only solution, but of course at a very high price that many small businesses cannot manage nor do I find fair. I only hope Costco inspires other major retailers to think about small businesses in the same manner”.
