Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy, and this is especially true in New York State, where these businesses continue to face a challenging tax climate. The impact of COVID-19 has only made things worse for these small businesses. But there are steps that can be taken to support them and improve the economic climate.
Government action is one important step in supporting small businesses. However, individuals can also make a difference by supporting local small businesses. These businesses offer unique and meaningful gifts that you won’t find at big box stores. Small businesses on Main Street, Market Street, Water Street, and elsewhere need our support now more than ever.
One way to show your support is by taking part in events like “Small Business Saturday.” This nationwide event aims to support small businesses and make a positive impact on the economy. It will take place on Saturday, November 25th this year. By shopping at local small businesses and participating in events like “Small Business Saturday,” we can all make a difference for the businesses that are so crucial to the economy.
