Shop Local on Small Business Saturday

Locally owned businesses help tell the uniquely American story of rural communities in our State. Many times these businesses become the cornerstones and landmarks in small towns, and are proudly passed down from one generation to the next. They represent what can be achieved when an entire family works together to provide a good or service.

Saturday, November 24 is Small Business Saturday. On this day, shoppers across the country are encouraged to show their support for locally owned small businesses. With the Christmas season fast approaching, Small Business Saturday is a perfect opportunity to buy local gifts for family and friends while supporting the entrepreneurs that are the lifeblood of rural Arkansas communities.

As a former small business owner myself, I know small businesses are the engine for job creation in our nation. Through my own experiences and by talking to small business owners across our District, I also know that nothing kills jobs faster than a Washington regulation. Too often federal agencies impose rules without talking to those who will be forced to live with them. As your representative in Congress, I am working to give small business owners and job creators some relief from onerous regulations. On Small Business Saturday we will all have the opportunity to advocate for our District’s locally owned small businesses.

Entrepreneurial ventures and small business are the backbone of the American economy, not only across Arkansas’ First District but throughout our entire country. Join me on November 24, Small Business Saturday, to show support for locally owned businesses and the families who make them run.
