I support Governor Herbert’s declaration of Saturday, November 29 as Small Business Saturday, and encourage shoppers to buy locally to sustain Utah’s small businesses.

Two-thirds of all Utah workers are employed by small businesses. As residents make a concerted effort to spend their shopping dollars locally that day, we are supporting the companies that employ our neighbors and friends, and allow our communities to prosper.

In order to ensure that Utah remains the best place to do business and continues to grow one of the most robust economies in the nation, I encourage all of my friends, neighbors and constituents to come together to support our local communities this Saturday, and every day.
