Small businesses in Geneseo are seeing a boost this Holiday Season because of community efforts such as bus trips and other events.
“We do everything we can to help promote our local businesses. Any events each business has as well, not just our large events like this one coming up, but any individual events our local members may have. We do everything we can to help promote them,” Said Geneseo Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Rhoni Perrine.
According to the Small Business Administration more than 50% of sales come from small businesses. The Owner of Designs on the Boulevard attributes it to the community aspect of Geneseo’s businesses.
“I think they’ve done a great job in making sure that everyone is aware of what is going on and making the businesses become a community within each other. To help each other and support each other I think it’s very important,” Said Diana Holbrook.
With the twelve days of Christmas nearing, you’ll find holiday shoppers flocking to small businesses and areas like Geneseo looking for that special gift this holiday season.
