What is a mom and pop business? A mom and pop business is a locally ran business. March 29th is the day to celebrate those places.

If you need to do some shopping this is the day to do it locally. Our local businesses rely on all of us to make it possible for them to stay open.

Go to the place you have been going to for the last 30 years. After that stop by one of the new local businesses and see what they are about.

You don't even have to buy anything. All you have to do is go l to these small local businesses and tell them that they are appreciated in the community. I know I have a couple friends who have started their local business. It was a struggle at first but they finally got their feet off the ground.

That was all thanks to local people like you, So please go and visit a few local businesses and tell them thank you for all their hard work.
