WHY: As the voice for our nation’s entrepreneurs, the SBA celebrates the 30 million small businesses, including the nearly 945,000 in Ohio, which strengthen our local communities and economies. During the holiday season, we put a special emphasis on their impact with Small Business Saturday, which falls on November 24, 2018. This initiative acknowledges those who generate two of every three net new jobs and deliver essential goods and services to consumers. Last year, more than 108 million Americans participated in Small Business Saturday, by shopping or dining small, and generated approximately $12 billion in reported spending. This year, support your local businesses and remember to #ShopSmall with us on November 24.
