Shop Small: Indie Beauty’s Best Black Friday Cyber Monday Deals
The holiday shopping season is crucial to consumer product brands. According to the National Retail Federation, holiday sales have averaged about 19% percent of annual retail sales over the last five years. Larissa Jensen, VP and beauty industry advisor at The NPD Group, told Women’s Wear Daily that they typically constitute a third of prestige beauty’s yearly revenues.
For small companies, the holiday surge can be make or break, and that has never been truer than this year. Hundreds of thousands of American small businesses have closed permanently due to COVID-19, and many are counting on a banner holiday season to avoid a similar fate. To make it as easy as possible to support emerging beauty and wellness brands this holiday shopping season, Beauty Independent has collected nearly100 Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals from the independent community.
