This year I’ve really noticed a concentrated effort to support more black owned businesses, not just those of your friends and people you know but in general. Alot of people are looking to do more of their spending with black owned businesses. Now if these people aren’t in your circle or don’t necessarily do a ton of marketing how are you supposed to find them? Well the Black Wall Street App can help you with that!

As a consumer you’re looking for black businesses in your area to purchase from right? The Official Black Wall Street App can send you alerts when you’re near a black owned business. You can also search for businesses. The app also has reviews on the local businesses. Because let’s be honest, not all businesses conduct good business so knowing that ahead of time is important. Find a business that has become your favorite? Then you can bookmark them and get notified when they have updates or new offers.
