W.O.M.B. Market To Feature 40 Local Vendors

November 29, 2022 | 0 Comments

W.O.M.B. [Women who Own and Manage Businesses] is getting set to host ‘Women-Owned Wednesday’ tomorrow [Nov 30] in order “to support some of the female-owned businesses in Bermuda” with 40 local vendors involved.

A spokesperson said, “The holiday shopping season is now in full swing, with Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and e-Monday initially showing positive growth.

“Women Owned Wednesday, following the trend of Black Friday, is the day sanctioned globally to encourage communities to support the female owned businesses in their area. Using this concept as the launch pad, W.O.M.B. created an annual market on the Wednesday following US Thanksgiving as a central platform for Bermuda’s female-owned businesses”.

“We encourage our community to come out to Bermuda Athletic Association Gymnasium on Wednesday, November 30 from 6.00pm to support some of the female-owned businesses in Bermuda.

“They are looking to feature as many as 40 businesses, and are not limited to businesses with a physical product to sell. While a majority of the businesses are offering products for sale, there are a number who offer services, both for individuals and to make life easier for families.

“There will also be a raffle draw, where items have been donated by female businesses, and local entertainment.”

Stephanie Lee, WOMB Facilitator and Market Organizer, said, “We are pleased and excited to bring this market to the holiday market circuit for the fourth year. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we had to pause the market. We are pleasantly pleased by the response of persons wanting to participate in the market. This year, was a reintroduction.

“We have a few familiar name, and a few new faces, some who launched their business as a result of layoffs during and since the pandemic. It’s incredible; seeing the resilience, perseverance and dedication these entrepreneurs have to pursue their dreams, while being able to support their families and contribute to the economy.”

The spokesperson said, “The market will be held at Bermuda Athletic Association on Wednesday, November 30 from 6.00pm to 9.00pm.

“Bermuda is encouraged to come out and choose women. I am always pleasantly surprised and pleased by the quality of the offerings presented by vendors. By patronizing local businesses, you are helping these women provide for their families, which in turn benefits the country.”
