Small Business Saturday – Get Out and Shop Small
Support Small Business – Tomorrow and All Year
If you’ve visited this Blog at all in the past couple months (and hopefully you have), you know we’ve been encouraging you to participate in Small Business Saturday — either as a means to grow your own business or as a way to support your local community.
If you need any additional reasons why you should get out and show your support — other than getting good deals on great local products and services — consider this…
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration:
- There were nearly 28 million small businesses in the United States last year
- Over the past two decades, small businesses have created 65 percent of net new jobs
- For every $100 spent in a locally-owned, independent store, $68 returns to the community
Your local small businesses are your community. They’re owned by your friends and neighbors and they are the heart and soul of your community. Join us in supporting Small Business Saturday 2016. Get out and #ShopSmall!
