More than 99.7% of all registered businesses are small businesses.
For every $100 spent at a small business, $68 stays in the local community, compared to $43 for large businesses.
Small businesses donate 250% more than larger businesses to non-profits and community causes.
Small Business Saturday is an opportunity for communities to show their support for local businesses between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Last year, #smallbizsat was a crazy, busy, exciting, exhausting, fun day. I wouldn't trade it in for the world. You all came out in force to show us how important a local yarn store in your community is to you.
But more importantly, you tell me this every week, all year long. Every week someone is genuinely interested in how KGY is doing, and then goes on to tell me that it's personally important to them that I stay open. You tell me regularly how strongly you feel about the community we've built here. How you've been looking for a shop to call home. How it's your "happy place."
