February is Black History Month, a time to celebrate African American history, culture and contributions to the country. An excellent way to honor Black History Month is to shop Black-owned brands. Walmart makes it simple to patronize these businesses with its Black-led storefront, featuring products from chef-worthy seasonings to cozy décor items and everything in between.
Whether you are shopping for a special toy for a child or a premium beauty product to treat yourself, the Walmart Black-led storefront is your go-to spot this February and all year long.
If it’s important to you to support Black-owned brands, shopping these companies in person and online is a great start. However, there are other key ways to show your support.
According to Xendoo News, leaving behind positive feedback and telling friends and family about the Black-led products you love will leave an impact. Supporting Black entrepreneurs and investing in their businesses are also outstanding ways to promote Black storefronts and brands.
Not only will you be investing in the livelihoods, communities and legacies of Black-owned companies when you shop at Walmart’s Black-led storefront, you’ll also treat yourself or loved ones to fabulous products. Canvas artwork, tasty food, fun toys and more — the items available are as diverse as their creators, and are thoughtfully designed to reflect their goals, pride and culture. That’s a win-win during Black History Month and every month of the year.
