The Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce announces that they will be receiving two Proclamations. Small business owners are invited to attend this meeting and join in the celebration.
- City of Brooksville on Monday, November 6th, at 7:00pm, at City Hall located
at 201 Howell Avenue, Brooksville.
2. Hernando County Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday, November 14th,
at 9:00am, at the County Courthouse located at 20 North Main Street, Brooksville.
These proclamations will recognize “Small Business Saturday” on Saturday, November 25, 2017, which is a shopping holiday held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving Day, one of the busiest shopping periods of the year.
The Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce is receiving this proclamation in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Hernando County Government, Florida’s Adventure Coast Visitor’s Bureau, the City of Brooksville, Brooksville Main Street, and the Brooksville Vision Foundation in support of Hernando County’s locally owned small businesses that create jobs, boost our local economy and preserve our neighborhoods.
- Small businesses have consistently played a major role in economic growth because they create so many jobs.
- Franchised small businesses employ roughly 8 million people, and make up 40% of all American retail jobs.
- Over 95 million people went out to shop small on Small Business Saturday last year.
- Spending on the holiday reached $16.2 billion – that’s a 14% increase from past years.
When planning your shopping holiday, remember to #ShopHernando #HernandoChamber as we celebrate the small businesses as they are the backbone of our economy and the glue that holds communities together.
