Our community has a number of small businesses that make McLean County unique and enrich the community. To celebrate and recognize these hardworking businesses, we invite you to join us as we celebrate Small Business Week from April 30 until May 6.

Small businesses are vital to our economic infrastructure and McLean County is fortunate to have a number of small businesses that not only make us unique, but also enrich our community. We want to celebrate these hardworking businesses and we invite you to join us all week long for Small Business Week.

Shopping small isn’t a once-a-year event; it’s a year-round necessity. When our small businesses thrive, our communities thrive. Small business includes the traditional brick-and-mortar customer and the online shopper. The week puts small businesses in the spotlight and encourages everyone to shop local and small. It’s a great way to get to know your neighborhood and how it’s growing and evolving. That’s one of the benefits is shopping small too! You know your dollars will stay local. Small businesses are constantly reinvesting in their communities. They donate to school programs and local organizations. That keeps your money local and makes every dollar you spend in a small business more valuable.

Give a shout-out to your favorite small businesses April 30 to May 6!
