Join #HipNJ and Beyond Main on Small Business Saturday

Join #HipNJ and Beyond Main on Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday Summit

Hip New Jersey and Beyond Main are joining forces to get the word out about the new way to Shop Local Online with a Small Business Saturday Facebook Live broadcast from Summit, NJ on Saturday, November 30 from 10 AM – 12pm!

A new online marketplace is live just in time for Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. This business is the bridge between the two shopping holidays this season for those who want to shop online AND support their local stores.

Summit, NJ resident Kate Giovambattista, has launched Beyond Main (BeyondMain.com) the online marketplace that helps small businesses and communities thrive in this new era of retail. Their mission: to bring service and convenience to shopping local.

Hip New Jersey approached Giovambattista when they caught wind of the shop local online marketplace. Maria Falzo and Lisa Marie Latino, Hip New Jersey co-founders, were intrigued by the idea of shopping local online and saw this as an opportunity to highlight Giovambattista’s technology solution for Main Street. Together, they are going to be doing a Facebook Live broadcast on Small Business Saturday from downtown Summit, NJ, the launch town for Beyond Main. Viewers can follow along on Facebook Facebook.com/HipNewJersey or better yet, head into town to get their holiday shopping underway.

Hip New Jersey will be interviewing local businesses to hear what’s on their mind and get to know what their business is all about and why shopping local matters. Shoppers will be able to stop by the following businesses to get freebies, discounts, and unique curated items at participating retailers such as A. HOME, The Co-Co, Great House, Silver Lining, Summit Downtown Inc., Sweet Nothings, The Toy Professor, Ateliers 113 and No. 18 Boutique. The CoCo will be hosting a kick-off coffee and breakfast for shoppers who want to fill up before hitting the streets. For those who can’t make the trip to Summit that day, they can now shop these stores and more online at BeyondMain.com.

Small Business Saturday

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Hip New Jersey on Small Business Saturday to not only promote the importance of small business but also showcase just how convenient we’ve made it to shop local”, said Beyond Main Founder, Kate Giovambattista. “Beyond Main was created for busy moms and families who like to shop online but want to support local businesses. When you shop or patron a local business, 50 percent of what you spend gets re-circulated back into your local economy, vs. 1 percent of the same spend through third party online sites like Amazon” added Kate. “We launched in Summit but will be expanding to other towns across the state and the Northeast in 2020.”

“Hip New Jersey is committed to bringing the hip happenings of our state’s best downtown areas, while Beyond Main is giving out state a new resource to shop local while showcasing what our towns have to offer,” said Hip New Jersey co-founder, Maria Falzo.

“We are so thrilled to be able to bring you highlights of these retailers for such a special initiative to our communities,” added Hip New Jersey co-founder, Lisa Marie Latino.

The idea of shopping local online is spreading. Residents and customers are loving how easy it is. Julie Lepore, local Summit resident and publisher of the SOMA Macaroni Kid family newsletter said: “I’m a recovering Amazon addict and Beyond Main has been there for me while I kick my habit. When I need a last-minute birthday present, but don’t want to trek downtown with all my kids, I log onto Beyond Main and my present is wrapped and ready for pick-up in hours. A huge bonus for me: the inventory is carefully curated so I don’t experience the paralyzing decision fatigue that comes with other mega online shops.”

Beyond Main is free to join and is expanding into new communities in 2020. To become a founding retail partner in your community, visit Beyond Main and register your business today.

Beyond Main is a female founded, New Jersey, retail technology startup, based in Summit, NJ. Beyond Main utilizes technology to enhance convenience and service around shopping and supporting local businesses through a software as a service subscription model. Beyond Main is free for shoppers to join, create profiles, and enjoy on demand access and shopping abilities with local stores and businesses.
