NFIB/Alaska thanked Gov. Bill Walker for pitching in to help promote Main Street’s busiest day of the year: Small Business Saturday.
“We commend the governor for helping draw attention to the importance of spending some holiday dollars in the mom-and-pop enterprises lining the Main Streets of Alaska,” said Denny DeWitt, NFIB/Alaska state director. “His proclamation marking this November 26 as Small Business Saturday details the huge economic impact of shopping at small firms, but this paragraph in particular bears keeping in mind more than any other:
‘ … when we purchase a product or service from a local store or restaurant, we help pay the salary of neighbors and loved ones and strengthen the local economy. Small business owners also contribute to our communities in other ways – by supporting local youth sports leagues, donating to food banks and other charities, and providing a first job experience and mentorship for many Alaskans …’ ”
