Celebration kicks off on Good Morning America
Waltham, MA (April 27, 2016) – In honor of National Small Business Week, Vistaprint is celebrating how America does small business with several initiatives to honor and celebrate the many small businesses that make up the United States.
Vistaprint and ABC’s Good Morning America are bringing its popular Deals and Steals segment to five major cities across America. Deals and Steals on Wheels will film live in five cities in five days, bringing big deals and surprises for viewers. In celebration of Small Business Week, each deal featured on the segment will be a local small business from that city. Vistaprint will surprise one business each day in a big way.
“We are so excited to be hitting the road with Good Morning America and celebrating small businesses across the United States,” said Trynka Shineman, president, Vistaprint. “It’s always great to get out there and meet our customers, learn the stories behind their business and what makes them unique. This week we’ve set out to learn how America does small business and what about each of these cities makes small businesses thrive.”
Deals and Steals on Wheels kicks off Monday, May 2 in Houston, stopping in Miami, Cleveland, Detroit and concluding in Boston on Friday, May 6. For more information on how you can attend the live tapings or watch on TV, visit http://www.vistaprint.com/lpt/gma-sbw-2016.aspx.
Vistaprint will highlight each city on the tour by spotlighting local customers and sharing their stories through our social channels, as well as an infographic that includes data and interesting facts about the small businesses that make up the city. Customers will also be invited to share how their city does Small Business on Facebook.
Vistaprint will be carrying on the celebration throughout the month of May by attending the Small Business Expo in Dallas on May 19 and sharing insights into what it takes to be a small business owner all month on our social channels.
The month will culminate with the launch of “Vistaprint on the Road,” a six month tour of the United States in a 40-foot Vistaprint branded RV. Staffed with rotating employees, the RV will park in one city per week and invite customers to come on board to consult with our employees on a variety of topics, touch and feel products offered on our site, share their stories, provide ideas and feedback, and get free giveaways.
