Governor Bentley On "Small Business Saturday"
The Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama joined Governor Robert Bentley during a meeting in which he signed a proclamation formally declaring Saturday November 29th as "Small Business Saturday" in the state. That event is designed to celebrate and support small business and the impact which it has on Alabama communities. Governor Bentley said "…Small Business Saturday is an important opportunity for all those in Alabama to support local retailers on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving…small businesses are the engines of job growth and an integral part of the equation that makes up a successful economy." Remember, for every $100 spent at a local small business – $68 returns to the community.
