Did you see which Lansing Small Business was on The Late Show?
You have to love it when small businesses are presented nationally. Especially when this small business is located here in Lansing!
During his opening monologue on The Late Show on Monday, November 29, Stephen Colbert spoke about a new initiative promoted by the show; small shopping.
Shop small in Lansing
To help small businesses that might be struggling during the pandemic, Colbert is encouraging his fans to post about a small business that could use a boost using the hashtag, #ColbertSmallBizBump. It helps get the company featured on The Late Show. And when that happens, the small businesses that end up getting featured see their sales increase dramatically.
