WATCH: Inflation Continues to Take a Toll on Alabama's Small Businesses

"I’m hearing of the issues concerned with inventory, cost, gas prices, and, of course, labor shortages."

NFIB State Director Rosemary Elebash told CBS 42 in Birmingham that Alabama’s small businesses are still getting pounded by inflation.

Consumers can help Main Street businesses by making it a priority to shop small, Elebash said.
