Mother's Day Kicks Off May For UPS Small Business Customers

Stocks in this article: UPS

ATLANTA, May 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UPS (NYSE:UPS) is partnering with some of its small business customers to share their stories and support the growth of their businesses for Mother's Day and Small Business Week. Accounting for roughly 46 percent of the private gross domestic product (GDP) 1, small businesses are strong drivers of the U.S. economy, and UPS is committed to supporting this growing community.

Small Business Daily Deals-Mother's Day

UPS is partnering with four small business customers to offer consumers special deals this Mother's Day. These special offers will be shared on UPS's official social channels @UPS and Facebook the week of May 5.  

  • Golden Edibles is offering 50% off Caramel Sea Salt, Belgian Chocolate-Dipped Oreo ® cookies for $24.95 with free shipping using promo code UPS
  • dcuisine.com is bringing master chef-created meals to mom with 15% off using promo code UPS33
  • Get customizable gifts at Kyle Design and receive the first engraving line free-just mention #UPSSmallBiz in the order notes
  • Fragrances are 20% off at FragranceShop.com using promo code UPS22

Kindrunner.com Is Good for the Sole

Small businesses have diverse needs, and UPS is capable of meeting all kinds of challenges to help them achieve their goals. UPS customer Kindrunner.com is one such example as they are more than an e-tailer for runners.

Founder Mike Conforti wanted to create a socially- and environmentally-conscious online business. Conforti motivates his customers to return their used running shoes that he then donates to charitable organizations. He uses UPS's carbon neutral shipping to minimize the impact his shipments have on the environment--all without sacrificing his commitment to excellent customer service, a critical part of running a sustainable business.

UPS Helps Small Businesses Get Ready to Grow

Businesses of all sizes have access to UPS expertise and resources. Many startups begin as a company of one, and handling everything alone can be overwhelming. UPS created UPS CONNECT to connect entrepreneurs to the right tools and resources for their specific needs.

"UPS CONNECT is a new, free program created with startups and entrepreneurs in mind," said Andrew Chang, UPS small business director. "We have listened to what our small business customers want and are providing free access to dedicated resources and expertise, consulting support, exclusive offers, and internet tools to save them valuable time."
