This post is brought to you by GOOD, with support from UPS. We’ve teamed up to bring you the Small Business Collaborative, a series sharing stories about innovative small businesses that are changing business as usual for their communities and beyond. Learn how UPS is helping small businesses here.
As you look around your town or city, what types of small businesses and mom-and-pop stores do you see? Chances are, you have more in your area than you think (according to the latest Small Business Association survey, there were 27.9 million small businesses in the United States) and the number is continuing to grow as new business creation outpaces closures.
To celebrate these small businesses and the value they bring to their communities, we're excited to announce the launch of GOOD Spots, an interactive map for the GOOD community to share and find the best small companies. So whether you want to try a new coffee shop, or have one you think is worth raving about, we want you to join us in celebrating local businesses. It's easy to search and share by location, category and name to find and spread the word about small businesses in your area—or even the next place you plan to visit.
Join us on GOOD Spots and help us find and support the small businesses that everyone should know about.
