Why Madison Is A Great Place For Small Businesses
If you are reading this blog, you probably already know that Madison is a great place to live. There isn’t enough space here to summarize why living in Madison is so wonderful, but I’ll give it a go.
First of all, it is one of the most festive towns you can find in New Jersey - especially at this time of year when Halloween is just around the corner with pumpkin festivals and apple picking abound. But even outside of fall, the community spirit is amazing. Our new community arts center is a shining example that community spirit. But what you may not know is how great it is to be a small business in Madison.
LH Spa & Rejuvenation has a number of beauty spas in New Jersey, and we have just opened up our new day spa in Madison. There is something about the folks here that puts a smile on your face. Its a sense of community, without being forced. So often, community spirit in a community can seem false or pushed. But in Madison, the community is just naturally there for small businesses like ours.
Part of the small business support is from our City Council. Over the last few years, they have run a strong “Shop Madison” campaign that encourages people to spend their hard earned money on local Madison businesses. Out of every $100 that is spent on a local shop, $68 stays in the community. Compare this to online shops or shops in other counties, this is phenomenal. Its a long-term, sustainable way of shopping that can actually help fund our local services.
Another huge component is the effective and active Chamber Of Commerce. It can be hard to be a small business owner in the current economic environment. The Chamber Of Commerce (as stuffy as that phrase sounds) is a dynamic organization that can really help look out for small business owners like us, and they offer help for all kinds of organizations. Sure, at LH Spa & Rejuvenation we focus on beauty procedures like cellulite treatment and skin tightening, but they will equally look out for all kinds of businesses, from Italian cooking schools to bespoke hat shops.
All in all, Madison is a great place to do business, and we are incredibly happy that we have opened up our new location here. Next time you are passing by LH Spa & Rejuvenation, come and say hi - we promise to return the Madison community spirit.
