Royse City Recognizes Small Business Saturday on November 27
23 Nov 2021
Small Business Saturday, held during the weekend after Thanksgiving, is a day dedicated to celebrating small businesses and encouraging consumers to shop at local establishments. Sandwiched between the frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday is an opportunity for shoppers to support businesses in their towns and thereby boost their local economy. Since its inception in 2010, Small Business Saturday has grown into a national movement, recording over $120 billion in spending.
Royse City, Texas, Supports Small Business
Royse City supports its small businesses on Small Business Saturday and throughout the year. The Royse City Main Street program contributes to this through its dedication to building economic vitality while preserving the character of the historic downtown. The Royse City Chamber of Commerce is another strong economic partner that empowers businesses and promotes leadership. In addition, Royse City Community Development Corporation customizes assistance and incentives to meet a business owner’s specific circumstances.
Royse City also has location assets that prime small business success. Located within the Dallas Metroplex, its business-friendly climate coupled with a population that has doubled twice — and is expected to grow again by 31.9 percent from 2019 to 2024 — gives small businesses the customer base and employee pool they need. The hometown atmosphere of one of the friendliest towns in Texas makes it a pleasure to conduct business.
Small Business Saturday in Royse City
In keeping with the small town feel of Royse City, the owners of Thymeless, Anchored Bliss Boutique, GypsyHeart Boutique, Bee Fly & Co, Beauty and the Beard Y’all, and Southern Grace have teamed up to bring the best Small Business Saturday to downtown. Each store will offer a holiday themed beverage for their shoppers, and if a shopper spends at least $20 at each of the six boutiques, the shopper will be entered into a raffle for a gift basket filled with gift cards from each of the participating boutiques.
“We hope a majority of Royse City will come out to see all of us and support local businesses this holiday season,” said Hollen Mohler, Owner and Operator of Thymeless.
Thymeless is a home decor boutique that also offers antiques, gifts, furniture, paint, and clothing. “I have been in the furniture flipping, antiques, and home decor business for the last six years,” said Mohler. “I started my business as our children started going off to school and I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with all my free time. I had gone to school for interior design and loved it, however my actual degree is in Economics. Once I got a taste of the home decor business I was hooked, and I instantly knew I would be opening a store of my own at some point.”
“I love running this business alongside raising our kids,” said Mohler. “It's also why shopping local is important. Our kids, and hopefully other kids who come in with their parents, see that owning your own business is possible. College is not for everyone and seeing our kids helping may help them see that being a small business owner is another avenue that is open to them. The hard work is so worth it, especially in a community like Royse City. We love the small town feel that Royse City has managed to keep even through its enormous growth.”
