1 August is the only month without a real holiday but it stands out for eyecare dates: Children’s Eye Health And Safety Month, Cataracts Awareness Month, Contact Lens Health Week and, perhaps most crucially, National Eye Exam Month. Everyone should be encouraged to have their eyes checked. Get the word out. August matters when it comes to eyecare.

Black Business Month, held every August to recognize African-American-owned businesses across the country, deserves its own shout-out. Now’s your chance to show support for minority entrepreneurs. Can you be more purposeful in your sourcing? Join a community event? It’s not just about doing the right thing — there are myriad benefits to exposing your business to diversity and new communities.


11 One date looms large in September: the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks. Your local biz community will likely be marking the occasion. Find worthy activities to support.

29 Nothing makes folks linger and contemplate all that’s good like the aroma of coffee. Which is just the mood you want customers in when they’re in your store. On National Coffee Day, team up with your local gourmet coffee shop on a joint promo … coffee tasting or free mug for an exam?
