On Thursday, November 16, the Brownsburg Town Council Vice President issued a proclamation recognizing Small Business Saturday, a day to support and shop local businesses.
The event – celebrated on the Saturday after Thanksgiving – celebrates local businesses in the community. The Town of Brownsburg and Greater Brownsburg Chamber of Commerce have launched Shop Local Brownsburg to share deals and promotions from 30 local businesses.
Full text of the proclamation is available below:
Whereas, the Town of Brownsburg celebrates our local small businesses and the contributions they make to our local economy and community; and
Whereas, according to the United States Small Business Administration, there are 529,456 small businesses in Indiana, representing 99.4% of all Indiana businesses and employment for approximately 1.2 million individuals; and
Whereas, small businesses are a vital part of the Brownsburg community; and
Whereas, every shopping dollar spent in Brownsburg counts to help the Brownsburg community remain strong and thrive; and
Whereas, shopping in Brownsburg also helps keep sales tax dollars within the community, helps local businesses flourish, provides employment opportunities, and helps provide tax revenue that supports emergency services, infrastructure maintenance, and other services; and
Whereas, advocacy groups, as well as public and private organizations, across the country have endorsed the Saturday after Thanksgiving as Small Business Saturday.
Now, therefore, I, Matt Simpson, Town Council Vice President of the Town of Brownsburg, do hereby proclaim November 25, 2023 as:
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
in the Town of Brownsburg, and urge the residents of our community, to support small businesses and merchants on Small Business Saturday and throughout the year.
