CLEVELAND, OH - Supporting small businesses is important year-round, but it's especially crucial during the holiday season. Small businesses play a vital role in the economy and the community, and shopping at these businesses during the holidays helps to support local entrepreneurs and contribute to the unique character of Cleveland.
One of the main reasons to support small businesses is that they help to create jobs and stimulate economic growth. Small businesses are often locally-owned and operated, and they tend to employ more people per dollar of sales than larger businesses. This means that when you shop at a small business, you're not only supporting that business, but you're also helping to create jobs and stimulate the local economy.
In addition to the economic benefits, shopping at small businesses also helps to support the unique character and diversity of Cleveland. Small businesses often offer products and services that are unique and cannot be found at larger, chain stores. By supporting small businesses, you're helping to preserve the local flavor and culture of Cleveland and contribute to its vibrant, diverse community.
Another reason to support small businesses is that they are often more involved in the community than larger businesses. Small business owners are often active members of the community and they often support local organizations and charities. When you shop at a small business, you're not only supporting the business itself, but you're also helping to support the community as a whole.
Check out the new CleveItToUs video series that has spread like fire since it's launch earlier this month; where local Clevelander 'Gremi' explores small businesses in every pocket of Northeast Ohio and brings you on an immersive and interactive journey throughout.
