NRHA News Honor Mom and Dad by Promoting Shop Local D id you know purchases made at a local home improvement store keep twice as much money in your community as the same purchases made at a big box store? This Mother's Day and Father's Day, let your town know! According to the National Retail Federation, in 2016, shoppers planned to spend more than $3.2 billion on Mother's Day and Father's Day gifts, which included categories like housewares and gardening, tools and appliances, sporting goods and leisure items and automotive accessories. To make sure your store stands out as a destination for these gifts and to promote the impact that spending money at local small businesses can have on a community, NRHA and Independent We Stand developed free Mother's Day and Father's Day shop-local signage, using data from NRHA's Home Sweet Home Study. This free signage package includes posters, shelf talkers, bag stuffers, a press release, social media photos and social media post ideas. To download these free marketing materials, visit TheRedT.com/momdad. The full study and other marketing materials that can be used all year can be downloaded at TheRedT.com/shoplocal.
