Pocatello Mayor Brian Blad will be issuing a proclamation at Thursday’s City Council meeting urging residents to support local small businesses.
The proclamation establishes Saturday, November 28, 2015 as Small Business Saturday in the Gate City.
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, “said Mayor Blad. “I would like to encourage everyone to shop local whenever possible not only on Small Business Saturday but every day of the year.”
According the United States Small Business Administration, 99.7 percent of American employer firms are considered small businesses. The proclamation will be presented to the Pocatello-Chubbuck Chamber of Commerce and Old Town Pocatello, Inc.
