February may be the shortest month of the year, but there is so much love to give. It’s also one of the most influential months of the year as we celebrate and recognize Black History Month.
Wish believes in building strong ties within our communities by committing to go a step further. That’s why we started our Wish Local program. We want to help small businesses thrive and make it easier for our customers to shop by picking up their orders the same day.
That’s why we are asking our customers to show their support by shopping and supporting Black-owned businesses all month long.
Here are four ways you can shop and support Wish Local Black-Owned businesses today!
Wish Local has partnered with over 50,000 stores worldwide to help support local businesses and make it easier for our customers to shop.
In the Wish app, look for the green location badge and search for small businesses in your local area.
You can also browse by store or specific items within your local area. The best part? Customers can pick up their items the same day for FREE!
Wish Shopper Pro-Tip: Don’t forget to check the store operating hours 😉.
Looking for another way to get your items delivered faster and safely? Ship your orders to a Wish local partner store in your area. Once your order has been delivered, you’ll receive an email notification to come to pick it up.
You can choose this option during the checkout process and you’ll save on shipping costs. It’s that simple!
Wish is going the extra mile to help ensure the safest shopping experience for our customers and small businesses. That’s why we are now offering FREE curbside pickup and delivery!
When you purchase your order from Wish Local, you can choose between Curbside Pickup or Delivery. If you chose Curbside Pickup, your order is ready for pick up now!
You will be able to pick up your order at a local store and call them to meet you outside for a contactless exchange. It’s safe and simple!
If you choose the delivery option, your order will arrive at your doorstep/mailbox within 1-3 business days of your purchase.
You never have to leave your couch! It’s okay, no judgment here 😊.
Not to worry, Wish Local delivery will be rolled out in your area very soon! You can still purchase your Wish items and use curbside service, OR you can choose to Pickup in-store. (Please be courteous and safe by wearing a protective face mask when entering the store).
Black-owned small businesses have long faced hardship due to systemic racism. But small businesses are integral to the makeup of America.
That’s why Wish took the pledge and dedicated 2 million dollars to create the Wish Local Empowerment Program, a designated fund to give Black-owned small business partners financial support.
We also teamed up with Black-owned businesses like Official Black Wall Street and Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce to help locate Black-owned businesses to support. Together we’re connecting with more small businesses to help promote equality and diversity within American entrepreneurship.
