How This Works

Let’s get a few things clear from the beginning. We are asking you to do business with us. We are not asking you for a “contribution.” The Bitter Southerner Inc. is a for-profit enterprise with a social purpose: to shine new lights on the South, our home.

When you do business with The Bitter Southerner, you will always get something real, something tangible, for your money — in addition to the words and images you enjoy on our site every week.

We are asking something uniquely important of you in that we are asking you to help us build the foundation of this business. We are inviting you all to become a part of the first generation of what we hope will be an ever-growing family.

Y'all come.


General Store Business Partners

Our goal for The Bitter Southerner General Store is to create partnerships with independent Southern businesses like our own, making their goods more widely available and helping our business in the process.

If you run an independent Southern business and would like to discuss making some of your goods available in The Bitter Southerner General Store, please email us at allyall@bittersoutherner.com.

 

Wall of Fame

Our site will have a Wall of Fame to commemorate this very special group of first-generation Bitter Southerners. The names of everyone who participates this week at any of the Member or Founder levels will be added. (Or, if you prefer, we will give you the discreet moniker, "Anonymous.") While we don't have a physical office space just yet, rest assured when we do that your names will grace the walls in graphic tribute. 


Private Contributions
& Underwriting

If your organization is interested in making a private contribution or exploring a longer-term "underwriting" relationship with The Bitter Southerner, please get in touch with us directly by emailing allyall@bittersoutherner.com.


Discounts for Card-Carrying Bitter Southerners

If you have an independent business in the South and would like to offer some sort of discount or premium to your card-carrying Bitter Southerner customers (and you know you'll have some), we want to see if we can work out a mutually beneficial business relationship. Please email us at allyall@bittersoutherner.com.
