by Christine Tarlecki,
THANK YOU Montco.Today for publishing this amazing article about our success participating in the Qurate Retail Group & NRF Foundation's "Small Business Spotlight"! 2020 was a trying year for so many of us. We were presented with several obstacles and worked extremely hard to keep our business going. Determined not to fail during the pandemic and like so many other businesses, our sales slowed, our manufacturing plant stopped production on non-PPE items, and we experienced significant delivery delays. However, through all of this we remained steadfast and refused to give up.
Guess what we did when we found out that we'd been selected as 1 of 4 Black Owned Small Businesses to appear LIVE on QVC & HSN? We screamed and jumped for joy! Getting this news at the start of 2021, helped us bring in the new year on a VERY happy note. The opportunity could not have come at a better time. Our participation in the "Small Business Spotlight" helped increase our sales (significantly) and got the word out about our business to people and platforms we would not have had access to otherwise. Needless to say we are extremely grateful.
If you are a black-owned small business we encourage you to apply to be a part of this program if offered next year! Click here to learn how you too can be a part of the "Small Business Spotlight".
