I support small businesses as often as I can, and I often feature them on Pigtown*Design. It’s so important to the fabric of our country (and others), that small business survive and thrive.
FOUR REASONS TO SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS
1. For every $100 spent at local small businesses, $68 returns to the community.
2. Small businesses employ half of all private sector employees.
3. Small businesses represent 99.7% of all employer firms.
4. For every year over the last decade, 60-80% of new jobs were generated by small businesses.
Here are some of my local small businesses that I support and promote.
Halcyon House Antiques – for the most exquisite pieces for your home, located in a gorgeous country setting. Housewerks Architectural Antiques + Salvage – one of a kind pieces salvaged from old buildings, churches and homes, located in a Victorian-era gas works. McLain-Wiesand – Custom-made furniture and selected antiques, located in Mt. Vernon in a working studio. Gore-Dean – Sophisticated selection of unique pieces in a museum-like setting. There are hundreds and hundreds of small businesses that need your support. They depend on this time of year to make it. So please consider supporting your local merchants so that they can support your community!
