Council declares Small Business Saturday in Ellsworth

ELLSWORTH — The Ellsworth City Council took a moment Monday night to recognize the economic impact of small businesses and to declare Saturday, Nov. 28, as Small Business Saturday in Ellsworth.

Council Chairman Bob Crosthwaite issued and read aloud a proclamation, citing statistics that indicate there are 27.9 million small businesses across the country right now and they employ more than 55 percent of the nation’s working population.

Crosthwaite said the city “supports our local businesses that create jobs, boost our local economy and preserve our neighborhoods.”
