“Millions of small businesses across the country are counting on our neighbors and communities to come out and support them during this weekend’s Small Business Saturday,” said Keith Hall, President and CEO of NASE.  “Over 27 million self-employed and small business owners from around the nation provide the economic fuel to keep our country moving. With the recent election of a new president and Congress, key small business issues ranging from health care to regulation and tax reform are on the front burner.  This Saturday is an opportunity for all of us to show our elected-officials how important we believe America’s small business community is to our economy by supporting locally-owned small businesses.”

“When America’s small businesses succeed, the American economy thrives.  During Small Business Saturday this weekend and throughout the year, I hope consumers understand the importance of buying both American and local by supporting our small business community.”
