TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of National Small Business Week, Hubba, the leading global wholesale marketplace powering the new retail economy, in partnership with ASD, will be joining forces with global thought leader Nicole Reyhle of Retail Minded, to celebrate the growing role of small businesses in the next generation of commerce. A growing number of consumers are in search of unique and higher quality goods, and small businesses are in a better position to win those customers and their high margin purchases than traditional big box companies that to date have dominated the headlines.
“Each day thousands of independent retailers come to Hubba to discover the emerging brands that will help them attract customers and grow their business,” says Ben Zifkin, CEO Founder at Hubba. “We are excited to team up with Nicole Reyhle from Retail Minded and ASD to shine a light on those independent retailers that are successfully differentiating themselves and with a combination of technology and personal curation beating larger competitors in the retail industry.”
In celebration of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week, Nicole Reyhle, along with representatives from Hubba and ASD, will visit five select cities with successful small businesses that act as examples for building thriving Main Streets in the US.
1. April 30 - Sonoma / Napa
2. May 1 - San Francisco
3. May 2 - Austin
4. May 3 - Denver
5. May 4 - Parker, CO
