Happy Veteran’s Day!
As a veteran myself, I want to tell you that the freedom that has been won for Americans is most evident in the hard work carried out by the small business owners who strive diligently to provide good food, entertainment, products and services without the crushing oppression experienced in so many other countries.
These hard-working civilians, many of them veterans, make up the backbone of our nation’s economy. As a business owner myself for many years, I know how hard it is to keep after it day after day. It sometimes seems like a battle just to keep the doors open and your staff paid.
So to the current members and veterans of our armed forces, and of our economic forces, we salute you. OneEighty has been borne out of our team’s deep belief in the power of the independent business owner to transform our country and continue to earn our position as a leader of the free world.
To our current and future merchants, we hope you will discover that doing 180 Deals is one of the key strategies you deploy in the fight to stay in business, provide jobs, and deliver the highest quality experience possible to your fellow Americans.
To our members, remember that supporting locally owned and operated businesses is one of the best ways to help your community survive and thrive during these difficult economic times. Doing a 180 Deal helps merchants sell through their inventory more quickly and in turn grow their business and hire more people.
We’re excited to be starting this journey with all of you. Hope your weekend was special and if you haven’t yet, find the veteran(s) in your family and reach out to say “Thank You.”
