MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The City of Mount Vernon is prepping for Small Business Saturday on Nov. 30.
The day, which celebrates small businesses, follows Black Friday. Residents are asked to join the city and the Small Business Administration in supporting small businesses and the local movement.
"Spending our dollars locally counts more than you think," representatives said. "Each dollar spent close to home makes businesses feel confident that their products and services are appreciated. Your purchase also contributes to the money that comes back to the city in sales tax revenue. The dollars we spend locally is almost like investing money into our own community."
