Small Business Week
It is small businesses week, and small businesses form the backbone of Westboro Village, filling the landscape of shops, restaurants, and services along the main street. In Canada, nearly 98% of all businesses are small-to-medium enterprises.
The theme for 2020 is how to forge our way forward. Westboro Village businesses are finding ways forward. Since March, small businesses, and the entrepreneurs behind them, have adapted and worked under ever evolving public health understandings and regulations to keep their businesses open, their staff employed and be engaged members of their communities. These entrepreneurs live locally and invest in their communities.
This year, we are asking everyone to support a small business. Order take out, buy from a main street shop, and let your favourite local small business know you support them.
