NYS: Support ‘Small Business Saturday’


UTICA, NY (WUTR-TV) — While shoppers may gravitate toward hot ticket items in technology or to splurge at big-box stores, New York State encourages thrifty holiday shoppers to go local.

Empire State Development, the state’s departments of tax and finance, labor, and agriculture and markets say they’re encouraging holiday spenders to invest in their own hometowns.

ESD says they want entrepreneurs and current business owners to be aware of programs and financial incentives that may benefit a new business endeavor.
