A new app makes buying black easier.
With today being Small Business Saturday it is only right to help you shop black this holiday season.
There is a new app that is making it easier for you to shop at black-owned businesses. The app, Official Black Wall Street, lets users know when they are by a black-owned business.
“I believe it’s due time for us to make a conscious effort to buy Black. We’ve heard the stats – that we have a $1.2 trillion dollar buying power, yet a dollar only stays in our community for 6 hours whereas, in Jewish and Asian communities, their dollar circulates for 20 days and a month, respectively,” the app inventor, Mandy Bowman, said.
According to The Atlanta Voice, businesses have seen a boost in sales with the help of the app. The Official Black Wall Street app is available for iPhones and Androids.
Sorry, But All Black People Don’t Look-Alike!
