Shop Save N Earn is a retail store that pays back earnings from 1-50% back on every order as we all know. However, it seems that the implications of such a system is new and most do not see the value in its system as well as the system of the Williamson Initiative. The organizations frame work directly involves the reinvestment into customers on every order as it instantly impacts the consumers and their purchase power. This direct investment into the customer will provide the customer with extra money to make more purchases at the store or at other local stores or organizations.
These organizations and businesses include;
- utilities or other utility companies,
- other retail stores or gas stations,
- living or home services, and
- Loan or rental services just to name a few.
Additionally, the direct investment allows everyone to earn or get extra money up to 50% of their total monthly costs back, thus alleviating the burden on our social system, as well as allow many to actually get the things they need and still have enough to get the things they want after.
In a community or social perspective the investment into the customer also invests into the community and the businesses that serve it, as the earnings generate sales and extra revenue to their stores because earnings are paid out at the register in cash and the customer decides where they spend their earnings. However, if the earnings are too great to give cash, then a check is given and they still can spend it how they choose, although all customers will have the option to add it to their earnings card.
In the investing into customers we invest into the community, but it did not seem enough as we can help the people, but who helps those helping people. We met this feeling with the donation of 20% of our yearly profits to supporting and creating programs, social projects, and other non-profit organizations. This will directly impact the local programs and social support in the area we serve such as lessen the burden of various social and government programs in which have a hard time handling the needs of the communities as many communities are distressed across the nation.
The implications of such investments are projected or estimated to make big impacts on the communities the stores serve in which each store can be strategically place in urban settings and helps build a more sustainable community through the direct investment into it and its programs. To better serve this mission the organization spends 25% of its marketing and advertising budget on the supporting and sponsoring of social and non-profit events. So, you decide will SHop Save N Earn be able to impact the areas it serves or not.
You decide! For me I could sure use 50% more money to spend!
