Small Business Saturday is today. This national initiative to shop local and support our hometown businesses is very important this year. The COVID-19 crisis has put a strain on our personal and business lives but we have a choice to address this challenge head-on and do what we can to maximize our impacts. So please find a local business you can support and keep it up until we’re back to some semblance of normalcy. Thank you!
