Patronize South Jersey’s small businesses

South Jersey Times – The U.S. Small Business Administration has designated April 30-May 6 as National Small Business Week to recognize and celebrate small businesses for creating jobs, promoting innovation and stimulating economic growth in communities nationwide.

The United States is home to 28 million small businesses. They create about two out of every three new jobs nationally each year, and employ more than half of all Americans, including 1.7 million workers in New Jersey.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, presenting new employment opportunities and serving as the foundation of some of our nation’s largest corporations. They are also a major contributor to the strength of local economies, promoting community involvement, increasing tax revenue and developing personal relationships with residents. These critical contributions are the direct result of the hard work, passion and creativity of small business owners and entrepreneurs.

South Jersey is home to numerous town centers and well-developed business communities. Our towns continue to be a focal point of small business growth and job creation, hosting a variety of companies and industries that preserve our culture. We encourage residents to patronize local small businesses, supporting their communities and nurturing growth opportunities for the region.
