This November 25th, we want to celebrate Small Business Saturday with you! Created in 2010, it’s now a holiday shopping tradition that celebrates small businesses like ours. Each year, more and more shoppers come out to support the movement, and in 2016, 112 million shoppers showed their love for their favorite spots and spent a reported 15.4 billion at small businesses.

Definitive has been part of the greater Seattle community since our first store opened on Roosevelt Way in 1975. For the last 42-years, our showrooms have provided a place where customers can experience a wide range of systems. Our team members are true enthusiasts and take pride in sharing their passion with customers — along with thousands of hours demonstrating music, movie and home automation systems over the years!

These days, pretty much anything you possibly need can arrive at your doorstep. While it’s hard to complain about the convenience factor — there are big reasons to shop small this holiday season.

Why choose to shop locally?

  1. Small businesses are powered by people who are experts in their industry. They are often passionate individuals who are available to answer your specific questions.
  2. You help build the community around you. Think about your local coffee shop, record store, or restaurant. Unlike big box stores, they are all unique. They add character and foster a unique culture in their local neighborhoods. Plus, tax dollars are returning to the roads, schools, and everything that builds a thriving community.
  3. Get an experience that you can’t buy online. Brick-and-mortar stores provide buyers a tangible experience and a place for human connection.

Support the small businesses you love.

At the end of the day, where you choose to shop matters. Grab a friend and show support for the small businesses you love on November 25th and throughout the holiday season. If you’d like to join us, our showrooms will be open for holiday gift ideas, snacks, and special promotions. We’d love to see you!
