Small businesses are the lifeblood of the economy, and it’s no secret that they face challenges in New York State. With the added strain of the COVID-19 pandemic, these businesses are more vulnerable than ever. However, there are steps that can be taken to support them and improve the economic climate.
Government action is essential in helping small businesses survive, but individuals also have a role to play. By supporting local small businesses, we can make a real difference in their success. From unique shops on Main Street to specialty stores on Water Street, small businesses offer meaningful gifts that can’t be found elsewhere.
One way to show our support for these small businesses is by participating in events like Small Business Saturday. This national event takes place on Saturday, November 25 and encourages people to shop at local small businesses. By doing so, we can help these businesses thrive and contribute to a stronger economy.
So let’s take action and show our appreciation for the small businesses that make our communities special. By supporting them and participating in events like Small Business Saturday, we can all make a difference for the future of our economy.
