Supporting small business is a beautiful thing! Choosing small business and local merchants over large chain corporations is supporting entrepreneurship, employment and economic growth. It is not only giving back to your community, but also supports an individual's dream and helps make it a reality.  Often the amount of risk, time, hard work, sweat and tears poured into small businesses are overlooked.
