Small Business Saturday is being touted across Towns, Counties, and States across America (4663 hits)

Freeport, New York - Small Business Saturday is being touted across Towns, Counties, and States across America. One regional chamber of Commerce in NY State Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. recently installed its Suffolk County Director Kimberly Grant-Bynoe and hung a large banner as a photo backdrop at her installation.

In addition, the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce provided over 100 attendees Shop Small shopping bags (American Express Sponsor) to promote Small Business Saturdays.

Everyone from the President of the United States Barack Obama, State and Local Officials and Chambers of Commerce across America are recognizing the need to rebuild small businesses in local communities. The Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. has decided to add small business Saturday to its annual plan to promote shop small in New York State.

“Small business is the backbone of the local economy, and when local communities thrive it raises the quality of life for all those who live in those communities. It is our goal annually to identify small business owners in our region every year on Small Business Saturday and promote Shop Small through supporting their local business establishments”. Phil Andrews, President - Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

Advocacy is an important component to various types of business organizations such as the US Black Chambers, Inc. and its member chamber Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc.

The business downturn in local communities over the last couple of years is getting a significant boost through such programs as Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday was celebrated on November 28, 2015 in Counties, Towns, Cities, and State across America.

Our chamber hopes that Small Business Saturday grows beyond a fad throughout America. Shop Small is a key concept that helps builds America and puts local communities back to work in a very substantial manner.

President Barack Obama stated “Small businesses are the engines of our economy. From the pop-up shops in our town squares to the family-owned restaurants that bring our neighborhoods to life, they are what keep America going. They provide the jobs, create the products, and develop the services that drive our Nation forward. That is why my Administration has made it a priority to ensure small business owners have the tools, resources, and expertise they need to succeed”.
