Support “Small Business Saturday” in MVT on Saturday, November 26
Sunday November 20, 2016
MVT CID has once again partnered with DC’s Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) to support “Small Business Saturday”—a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. According to the federal Small Business Administration, small businesses comprise 99.7 percent of U.S. employer firms and 49.2 percent of private-sector employment. What’s more, local, small businesses comprise 75 percent of the retail and restaurants in MVT. To help celebrate Small Business Saturday, DSLBD once again printed small reusable shopping bags with a special DC logo—1,000 of which have been distributed to businesses throughout MVT. Show your support for small businesses in our community by picking up your own reusable bag at a participating retailer or the MVT CID office at 457 Mass Avenue, shop our local stores, and take a selfie using the #ShopDC hashtag!
