Celebrate Small Businesses May 2 - 8, 2021

Small businesses are the life-blood of our community. In fact, in 2018 small businesses made up 99.8 percent of all businesses in Anoka County with over 55 percent of businesses having fewer than five employees. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business and they create nearly two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. Small business plays such a crucial role in our economy. That is why for over 50 years the U.S. has celebrated National Small Business Week to recognize the important role small businesses play in our economy. This year, National Small Business Week takes place May 2-8, 2021.

This year, the City of Blaine will also be celebrating National Small Business Week to highlight and thank our local small business community. Throughout the week the City will be highlighting various small businesses around the city, encouraging residents to visit Blaine’s small businesses and share their experience, and providing free workshops for small businesses. The City invites all small businesses and residents to participate in this year’s celebrations.
