SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Overstock.com, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:OSTK) Main Street Revolution store allows you to support local American businesses on Small Business Saturday while enjoying the convenience and selection online shoppers have come to love. The program, which was developed in 2010 by company founder and CEO Patrick M. Byrne, is designed to increase the visibility of small businesses in the United States by offering access to the over 30 million shoppers that visit Overstock.com’s website each month.
“Main Street Revolution is a great program that gives exposure to a national market that small businesses across the country otherwise may not be able to reach,” said Overstock.com’s Vice President of Merchandising Ralph Mondeaux. “It’s rewarding to be able to offer American entrepreneurs access to millions of customers that can help their businesses thrive without many of the overhead costs and logistical concerns normally associated with rapid growth.”
Byrne first conceived the idea for Main Street Revolution when he was searching for a way to help small business owners in the US recover from the economic recession caused by the collapse of the housing market. He realized that by allowing these businesses the opportunity to join Overstock.com’s existing online network, they could reduce supply chain, storefront, and other overhead costs, and open their products to a much larger audience than their existing local markets could reach.
“Main Street Revolution is the exception to the rule that small businesses must rely only on customers that live nearby for success,” Mondeaux continued.
