Celebrating Small Business National ‘Be Heard’ Day

Today is Small Business National ‘Be Heard’ Day. Join us in celebrating Cape Ann’s many small businesses and the entrepreneurial spirit that is vital to America’s way of life. #NationalBeHeardDay.

GloucesterTEASE™ is a new women-owned small business on Cape Ann. On National ‘Be Heard’ Day we’re giving a ‘shout out’ to other businesses and residents of Cape Ann. We believe in the concept of ‘Think Globally/Act Locally.’ With that in mind we offer high quality apparel that is locally designed and manufactured (Made in the USA) with a global mission of offering messages to spread positivity, optimism and peace.

We also celebrate and promote the City of Gloucester MA – Which We LOVE, and where we live, work and play.

“Together Everyone Achieves Something Extraordinary™” Our tag-line reflects the Community Spirit found here on Cape Ann. From Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken, to the many charitable organizations (too many to name here!) and the many residents of Cape Ann that ‘Give Back’ and/or ‘Pay it Forward.’  The diverse businesses that make up our community and support one another. Special thanks to GMG’s Joey Ciaramitaro, whose blog helps support local businesses while profiling the City of Gloucester’s many attributes ‘over the bridge’ and out into the world.

GloucesterTEASE™ goals include involving local designers and manufacturers, supporting local community, and offering a percentage of our profits to support initiatives for health, peace initiatives, and animal welfare.

Our T-Shirts are available at the Willow Rest, located at 1 Holly St., Gloucester MA. ‘Thank You’ Melissa Donati for all that you do to support local businesses! You can also find our apparel on-line – Stylish, soft, durable and FUN.
