Forget sleeping in tents on the sidewalk and elbowing someone’s grandma out of the way for the best Black Friday deal of the year. Here at Dickinson Jewelers, we are all about Small Business Saturday, an amazing day to shop local and get great deals on the jewelry you already love.
But what’s Small Business Saturday, and why should you care?
Did you know that we are one of 579,173 small businesses in the state of Maryland? That means we help make up 99.5 percent of all businesses in the entire state! Half of all employees in Maryland work for a small business.
As a small business, we do things a little bit differently. We know our customers by name and have built relationships that last over generations. Libby Dickinson, a third-generation employee and daughter of owners Kathy and Claude, often sells jewelry to former teachers and babysitters - and she’s not the only stylist to do so! Our stylists truly know you and can direct you to that perfect piece of jewelry for you, not a generic piece they recommend to everyone.
We give back to our community by supporting groups like Calvert Memorial Hospital and the Humane Society. We absolutely love partnering with community organizations because we have a stake in seeing these organizations succeed. Our employees live, work, and shop right here in Calvert County, and we want to use our business to support our home.
When you shop at Dickinson Jewelers, you aren’t just buying top-of-the-line diamonds. You’re buying diamonds that you asked Claude to pick up for you the last time he was in Antwerp. You aren’t just buying on-trend Alex and Ani bracelets; you’re giving back to your community. When you splurge on those incredible sapphire earrings you’ve been eyeing, you’re not supporting a multimillion dollar company. You’re supporting Sherrie, Nya, Dolly, Tamaki, and all of our incredible employees.
To thank you for loving our small business as much as we do, we’re offering some amazing specials if you come in on Small Business Saturday, November 25. Our Black Fri-yay sale will continue through Saturday with a fun bonus Alex and Ani gift with purchase!
