CARSON CITY, Nev., Nov. 25, 2014—With only days to go, Main Street enterprises throughout Nevada are readying for Small Business Saturday on November 29.
“This national campaign began five years ago as a way to help kick-start our way out of the Great Recession,” said Randi Thompson, Nevada state director for the National Federation of Independent Business, “and it’s paying some nice dividends for the economy. Sales at local, independent firms exceeded $5.7 billion after last year’s promotion. But Small Business Saturday is more than just a way to leverage a little lucre from Black Friday’s booty, it’s also acquainting consumers with an array of interesting shops they just can’t find in a suburban shopping mall, shops right on the Main Streets of the communities in which they live.”
This year’s Small Business Saturday is a joint campaign with American Express and NFIB, America’s largest small business association. Both organizations are giving Main Street merchants across America an opportunity to post descriptions
about their shops and any special deals they’re offering For Small Business Saturday. Nevada merchants taking advantage of NFIB’s offer included:
- Elko—LeeAnne’s Floral Designs
- Henderson—Above All Las Vegas ATV Tours and Watercraft Tours; Patty’s Companion Care
- Las Vegas—Elle’s Boutique; Fab Spa Parties; Glam Squad Shop; Life Shotz; Tendal Real Estate
- Reno—Deltchev Gymnastics; Flowers by Patti; Kimmie Candy; Operation Red Carpet
- Sparks—Premier Auto Body
For more than 70 years, the National Federation of Independent Business has been the Voice of Small Business, taking the message from Main Street to the halls of Congress and all 50 state legislatures. NFIB annually surveys its members on state and federal issues vital to their survival as America’s economic engine and biggest creator of jobs. NFIB’s educational mission is to remind policymakers that small businesses are not smaller versions of bigger businesses; they have very different challenges and priorities.
