Celebrating Small Business Week: Why Local Support Matters

Small Business Week, celebrated from April 28 to May 4, 2024, is not about sales or promotions; it is a heartfelt celebration of our community’s lifeblood – our local small businesses.

Small businesses are a big part of the CSRA. From cozy cafes where we meet friends and coworkers for a cup of coffee, to the boutiques that offer unique finds, and the family-owned restaurants serving up delicious meals. These businesses are what make Augusta great.

Supporting local small businesses is more than just a trend; it is a commitment to the growth of the CSRA. Here are a few reasons why it matters:
1. Money spent at small businesses stays in the community, supporting jobs and livelihoods.
2. Local businesses often offer products and services that you will not find in big-box stores.
3. Small business owners and their staff take pride in getting to know their customers, providing tailored recommendations and excellent customer service.
4. Small businesses are deeply rooted in our community. They sponsor local events, support charities, and participate in initiatives that benefit everyone.
5. Shopping locally can also have environmental benefits. With shorter supply chains, small businesses often have lower carbon footprints compared to larger corporations.

At Richardson Professional Solutions, we help small businesses, nonprofits, and family estates in Making Time for What Matters. ™ This Small Business Week, take the chance to discover a local business in the CSRA.
