Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Arpita Muchhal Design!
Four questions with Arpita Muchhal, founder of Arpita Muchhal Design.
Why did you start your business?
I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs and with young kids, I started to look at ways for a better work-life balance. I also realized that there were very few's and we have a unique approach to design that I want to share with my clients.
What is your best-selling product/service?
My design sense; my commitment to my clients; and my experience in developing practical solutions for my client's lifestyle. I am well versed with FEMA-compliant homes and wetlands considerations. I appreciate New England architecture and antique homes, so my clients get the old-world charm in their projects.
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
I try to support as many local businesses as I possibly can from Ring's End for all my design and construction needs; supporting local restaurants and cafes; and sourcing local stores for gifts, I do my best to keep local businesses thriving by providing recommendations to my clients for their various needs.
I also support small from home businesses as much as possible which can run the gamut of local organizers, chefs, landscapers, carpenters, etc. I also speak up to support other local businesses that do good work.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
I started as a pure design firm but have now branched out into project management and construction management. I love growing as a person and a business and look for solutions.
