Black Friday Deals ft. Latinx and Minority-owned Businesses!

(Yes…some promo codes included :)

Published: November 26, 2020

The best part of 2020? You can now finish your Thanksgiving meal and enjoy Black Friday deals from your couch while staying indoors. No more waiting outside, in long lines, in the cold!

It should come as no shock that businesses, in general, experienced financial hardship this year when the significant COVID-19–related disruptions began. According to research conducted by the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative (SLEI), “…the long-term reality facing Latino-owned businesses (LOBs) is much different. They have less of a cash buffer and are less likely than White-owned businesses (WOBs) to have received funding from the PPP to help them weather the storm.”

Here’s a quick list of Latinx and minority- owned businesses that you can support this holiday season!
