Small businesses are often the backbone of the economy, and this is especially true in New York State where they continue to face a challenging tax climate. The impact of COVID-19 has made things even more difficult for these businesses as they struggle to survive. It is crucial for both government and individuals to take steps to support them and improve the economic climate.
Government action can go a long way in supporting small businesses, but individuals also have a role to play. By shopping at local small businesses, we can help these businesses thrive and make a positive impact on our communities. Many small stores and shops offer unique and meaningful gifts that you won’t find anywhere else. Supporting these businesses on Main Street, Market Street, Water Street, and other neighborhoods is essential now more than ever.
One nationwide event that aims to support small businesses is “Small Business Saturday.” This year, the event will take place on Saturday, November 25th. 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. Let’s come together to support our local small businesses and help them continue to be a vital part of our communities.
