Small businesses are often referred to as the backbone of the economy and rightly so, in New York State, these businesses continue to face a challenging tax climate, made even more difficult by the impacts of COVID-19. As small businesses struggle to survive, it is crucial for both government and individuals to take steps to support them and improve the economic climate.
Individuals can make a difference by supporting local small businesses. Many people have small stores and shops right in their own community that offer unique and meaningful gifts. Small businesses on Main Street, Market Street, Water Street, and elsewhere need our support now more than ever. By shopping at local small businesses, we can all make a positive impact on the economy.
One nationwide event, “Small Business Saturday,” aims to support small businesses and make a difference. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, November 25th. By participating in events like “Small Business Saturday,” we can all work together to help these important businesses thrive and contribute to a stronger economy.
