CARRBORO, N.C. -- Mayor Damon Seils has proclaimed May 2-5 to be Small Business Week in Carrboro.
Did you know that 96% of businesses in Carrboro are small businesses, and together they employ more than 3,350 workers? Let's celebrate them during Small Business Week and support them year-round!
“I encourage all residents to support the small businesses in our community, appreciating and celebrating the personal touches and unique expertise small businesses offer and the economic resilience they foster,” Mayor Seils said.
Accepting the proclamation on behalf of the local business community was Josh Moorhead, who is chair of the Carrboro Business Alliance Leadership Council and manager of Weaver Street Market.
The Town’s Economic Development Department supports the business community, with a special emphasis on locally owned businesses, by serving as an information hub to help businesses succeed. It also administers loan programs to support job creation, business retention, and energy efficiency; partnering with the Carrboro Tourism Development Authority, the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitors Bureau, and the Carrboro Business Alliance to promote local businesses.
