CFO Jimmy Patronis: Support Florida’s Small Businesses by Shopping Local on Small Business Saturday

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – In celebration of Small Business Saturday, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis encourages Floridians to support local small businesses and highlights the impact of small business to the state’s economy.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Small businesses have a tremendous impact on our state's economy with 2.5 millones small businesses employing 3.3 millones people statewide. Holiday shopping will be in full swing this weekend, so I encourage all Floridians to support local businesses and the entrepreneurs who live in our communities and work hard to serve their neighbors every day.”
 
4 Small Business Shopping Tips:
 
1. Learn about your local businesses. With new small businesses opening every day, set aside a day to explore your town and see what small businesses have to offer in your area.
2. Consider budgeting for shopping local. To support local businesses, consider setting aside a specific sum in your personal budget each month for local only shopping.
3. Shop local for the holidays. Shopping local is an excellent choice for holiday gifts as many local businesses offer holiday deals just like the big box stores.
4. Shopping local benefits your community. When you invest money in your local economy, you’re not just helping local business owners—you’re also helping yourself by supporting your community.
