Small Business Saturday

  • Share |

This Saturday marks the 2nd annual “Small Business Saturday,” a day dedicated to small businesses during one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

Supporting small businesses means supporting your local community. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), more than 50 percent of American workers either own of work for a small business. Small businesses create jobs and instill initiative and independence in American workers. Local stores bring neighborhoods and communities together. Owners hire local employees, buy locally grown produce, and sell to the immediate community.

Please “Shop Small” on November 26th to celebrate local businesses. All it takes is one purchase to make a difference.

The SBA has more information at www.sba.gov/saturday.
