Governor Proclaims Nov. 29 as Small Business Saturday in Alabama

Date: November 19, 2014

NFIB/Alabama State Director Rosemary Elebash and NFIB members and their families joined Gov. Robert Bentley on Nov. 19 for the signing of a proclamation declaring Nov. 29 as Small Business Saturday in Alabama. Small Business Saturday is designed to celebrate and support small businesses and the impact it has on Alabama communities.

“Small Business Saturday is an important opportunity for Alabamians to support local retailers on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving,” Governor Bentley said. “Small businesses are the engines of job growth and an integral part of the equation that makes up a successful economy. By recognizing Small Business Saturday, we can help support the small businesses that contribute to our economy and our communities. As we begin the holiday shopping season, I encourage Alabamians to shop at local small businesses throughout Alabama.”

Elebash said, “Embracing Small Business Saturday gives Alabamians a chance to show their appreciation and help Alabama’s essential job creators in a very real way-by visiting shops, restaurants and service providers while shopping local

“When you shop on Main Street, most of that money stays in your local community,” she said. “We can all make a difference by participating in a day dedicated to small businesses and continue by ‘shopping small’ all year.”

2014 is the 5th anniversary of Small Business Saturday. A copy of the governor’s proclamation can be found here.
