MAKRO is starting a tradition—a tradition of celebrating the people who run their own businesses day in and day out—the individuals who style our hair just right, brew our favourite morning coffee, and make us feel at home in our communities.
Every day, millions of dedicated independent businesses around the world make our lives more vibrant and cheerful by providing essential and thoughtful services.
They are indeed the social and economic backbones of our communities. Not only do they enrich our neighbourhoods with great deals and services, they also create millions of jobs and help sustain meaningful interactions across communities.
On October 11, 2016, MAKRO celebrates business owners everywhere with the first ever Own Business Day. With this special day, we pay tribute to the true dedication of the business owners and show our recognition to them!
On Own Business Day, business owners worldwide will offer customers specials, whether a signature Own Business Day pizza, a free espresso, or grocery delivery. These specials are posted on a searchable map at own-business-day.com. By offering specials, owners show appreciation to their existing customers and attract new ones while customers can thank owners for the roles they play in their lives. People everywhere are invited to join in celebrating the first Own Business Day on October 11th. It will be a day full of new experiences and special offers—powered by proud business owners in MAKRO’s 25 countries.
