Here at Ros Hommerson, we love our small businesses and take pride that we can help them grow. Recently, Annie and I took a trip to see just that. We traveled to stores in Richmond, IN, Dayton and Columbus, OH, where we had the opportunity to talk to the owners. Esmond’s Shoe store was our first stop. This mom and pop start up has been around for 50+ years. They pride themselves of a ‘sit and fit’ ambiance, knowing, understanding and buying for their evolving customer. This spacious store has everything from accessories to footwear.
Small businesses are job creators. Supporting local businesses also helps your fellow community members who work at them. When a community has an energetic commercial center, it also creates generous opportunities for these workers to shop at other local small businesses. When local residents shop at small businesses within their communities, their tax dollars stay within the local economy. It’s a WIN/Win for everyone!
Small business Saturday is coming up on November 25th! Be sure to support your community!
