Cushing Chamber Small Business Season Cushing, OK Campaign
11/1/2022 - 12/31/2022
It’s Small Business Season in Cushing, OK!
From November 1st – December 31st, we’re celebrating Small Business Season™. The chamber is encouraging every person of our community to support friends and neighbors by shopping, dining, and exploring our small businesses.
Small Businesses Are a Big Deal to CUSHING, OK!
Small business made up over 60% of all new jobs this year and yet they face many challenges from rising costs to filling vacancies. Plus, according to JP Morgan Chase, “The median small business holds (only) 27 cash buffer days in reserve. Half of all small businesses hold a cash buffer of less than one month. Moreover, 25% of small businesses hold fewer than 13 cash buffer days in reserve.” That means over 50% of small businesses wouldn’t last over a month on their reserves.
They need our help, and we need theirs. On average, $68 of every $100 spent locally stays in our community. Most of us turn to small businesses first when we’re seeking help for our nonprofits, youth activities, and sponsorships. When they thrive, we thrive!
Where you spend your money this holiday season matters.
Support small businesses by patronizing them and/or:
- Writing reviews
- Referring friends
- Checking-in and taking pictures or videos and sharing them on social media when you’re visiting small businesses
- Sharing small business posts on social media
- Talking about your favorite businesses on social media
- Participating in the Shop Local Campaigns
Join us and pledge to support local this holiday season. Shopping small can make a big difference.

CUSHING CHAMBER MEMBER BUSINESSES:
Hi there Cushing Chamber Member Businesses!
We have a big announcement for you.
This year, we’re celebrating Small Business Season™! Small Business Season is a global marketing initiative designed to bring awareness to how shopping local has a large positive impact on our community. Small businesses are your neighbors and friends. They provide over 60% of all new jobs and they are the first people we call upon to support local initiatives, nonprofits, and youth activities.
When they thrive, we thrive!
As part of this initiative, we’re challenging you to support the small businesses in our area that make our community one of the best around. We’re asking you to make a small change in your spending habits for a big impact in our community this holiday season. Committing to switching just one thing you buy from an out of town business, can mean an increase of about 20% in revenue for our community. Imagine what we could do if everyone pledged to shop local Cushing, OK.
Additionally, if you’re a small business owner, be part of the Small Business Season festivities through our Shop Local Campaigns that will be happening Dec. 8 through 10. These dates will be dedicated to severe discounts at stores; "Black Friday" Type sales at our Member businesses; appetizers, drinks, refreshments, etc. served at your businesses while customers shop during a designated time frame (5 pm - 7 pm); Businesses doing giveaways; Gift Card drawings for those that visit your stores; and much more!
By Nov. 14, We will be making 12 x 12 posters of this logo and bringing them to our participating Member businesses to hang in your front windows, so our community will know which stores/businesses are supporting Small Business Season TM Cushing, OK through the Cushing Chamber Campaign, and that YOUR business is 100% committed to our local small businesses and making this the very best Small Business Season.
