Small businesses play a vital role in the economy, and this is especially true in New York State where they continue to face challenging tax conditions. The ongoing effects of COVID-19 have only made things worse for these small businesses. It is important that both government and individuals take action to support them and improve the economic climate.
While government policies can make a difference, individuals also have the power to support small businesses by shopping locally. Many small stores and shops offer unique gifts that are perfect for holiday presents or just because. By choosing to shop on Main Street, Market Street, Water Street, and other local areas, we can help these businesses thrive.
One way to show our support is by participating in events like “Small Business Saturday,” which takes place on November 25th this year. This nationwide event aims to promote small businesses and make a positive impact on the economy. 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 our communities.
