Mayors of Flint and Fenton Recognize ‘Small Business Saturday’
The mayors of Flint and Fenton have recognized Saturday, November 30th as Small Business Saturday. A proclamation has already been signed by Flint Mayor Dayne Walling making the upcoming Small Business Saturday a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for the communities.
"You can go shopping or dining at a local small business, tell others to be a part of the movement or share with your own network how you're supporting small businesses in your neighborhood," said Walling. "Anything you can do helps to give small businesses the support they need to keep creating jobs, powering the economy and invigorating communities," Walling continued, "and that's what makes the movement a success."
Most of Michigan's small businesses depend on strong community support and are a vital resource for downtowns, neighborhoods and local commercial centers. Consumers show their continued support with each visit.
"Saturday (November 30th) is the day in which we officially recognize and encourage people to visit our local small businesses," said Fenton Mayor Sue Osborn, "but in reality those businesses need our support year round."
Do you support small businesses? Will you tomorrow?
