Small Business Week

Did you know May 16-20 is National Small Business Week?  According to the US Small Business Administration, more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business.  These businesses perform a vital role in the well-being of both their local and national economies.  Being a small business ourselves, we understand the hard work and dedication that all small business owners put into making their business a success.  That is part of the reason why we love supporting other small businesses both here at the store and in our own lives.  Join us this week in supporting locally-owned small businesses in your area.  Instead of national chains, make a point to visit your favorite local businesses.  Eat local.  Shop local.  Not only will this help small businesses, but it will also make a positive impact on the community.  Interested in learning more about National Small Business Week?  Check it out here.
