Cuomo promotes Small Business Saturday

Nov 29, 2014

Calling small businesses and local entrepreneurs the backbone of the state's economy, Governor Andrew Cuomo has designated today as Small Business Saturday.

After shoppers flocked to major retailers on Black Friday and many will plug-in for Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday encourages shoppers to support their communities by visiting their local retailers who offer unique and specialty items.
