With the holiday season quickly approaching, we’re encouraging all our neighbors to support small, local businesses on our Great Streets this weekend. Small Businesses not only help create a vibrant culture and support great neighborhoods -they’re the backbone of our local economy with 76 percent of LA businesses having fewer than 10 employees.
The first-ever Small Business Saturday took place on Nov 27, 2010. Following the initial success, state and local leaders across the country voiced their support for Small Business Saturday culminating with the US Senate officially recognizing the day. Last year, an estimated $14.3 Billion was spent at small, independent businesses that day!
So make sure to hit the streets on Saturday and #ShopSmall. You certainly won’t be alone- nearly 82 percent of US consumers plan to shop or eat at an independently owned store or restaurant that day!
