SBA: Shop at small businesses

Posted:
WASHINGTON – Shop at small businesses – not just large department stores – the U.S. Small Business Administration is encouraging with its second annual Small Business Saturday campaign.

“Small businesses are the foundation of our economy – half of America’s workers either own or work for a small business,” said SBA Administrator Karen Mills. “Small Business Saturday is an opportunity to show our support for our friends and neighbors who throughout the year are growing our local economy, as well as supporting many local initiative and organizations.”

Small businesses have created two out of every three net new jobs during the past 15 years, a news release said.
