NORWALK, Conn. — Norwalk will join the push to encourage people to patronize local businesses on Small Business Saturday” Nov. 30. Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling and the Greater Norwalk Chamber of Commerce remind all area shoppers that the day is “a day of national recognition and participation in patronizing small business, and the businesses residing in our local areas.”
“In this season of thanks, we are indeed grateful to our small business community for all their contributions,” Rilling said in a pess release. “These businesses collectively employ many, many people, and they support the local community in myriad ways. Let us please keep small business in mind as we shop this holiday season.”
Chamber President Edward J. Musante, Jr. added, “Small business is not only the backbone of our economy, but also constitutes the majority of our Chamber membership. We hope everyone will be cognizant of small business as they make their holiday purchases—and purchases for services and goods any time of year.”
