On May 2, the Department of Community and Economic Development Acting Secretary, Neil Weaver, highlighted the importance of small businesses in the commonwealth.
Weaver also encouraged Pennsylvanians to support their favorite local shops during Small Business Week in Pennsylvania.
Small Business Week will take place from May 1 to May 7 this year.
“The commonwealth is home to more than 1 million small businesses that employ about 2.5 million workers, and we are celebrating them during this special week. I encourage every Pennsylvanian to take Small Business Week as an opportunity to support their favorite local businesses by visiting, shopping online, providing positive online reviews and recommendations, and tagging them on social media. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, so let’s do all that we can to support them this week, and every week,” said Acting Secretary Neil Weaver.
