WASHINGTON— U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement encouraging Arkansans to support small businesses in their communities Saturday, November 28 as part of “Small Business Saturday”:
“Many small businesses continue to experience hardships as a result of COVID-19. Their success depends upon customers willing to support them. We can help make their holidays brighter by boosting sales for our local, independently-owned businesses. Small Business Saturday is a great time to show our appreciation for the entrepreneurs in Arkansas,” Boozman said.
In 2019, shoppers spent a record high $19.6 billion at independent retailers and restaurants on Small Business Saturday.
