Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus is asking residents and visitors alike to take part in Small Business Saturday (SBS) in Orange County on Sat., Nov. 24.
There are approximately 9,000 small businesses in Orange County and for every $100 spent locally, $73 stays in the economy. There are 30.2 million small businesses in the United States, accounting for 99.9 percent of U.S. businesses, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy.
Small Business Saturday is held nationally every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is dedicated to supporting the local businesses that are a critical component of the fabric of communities and economies.
