Shop Small, Shop Local
Thursday, November 10, 2022
November is National Entrepreneurship Month. “A record 5.4 million new businesses were started in 2021, over 20% more than any year on record. … Entrepreneurs’ willingness to take risks, work hard, and never quit make possibilities come alive. They turn vision into reality and ideas into products, profits, and national prosperity. This month, we celebrate their contributions as a point of national pride and recommit to giving them the space and support to make sure America wins the 21st century.” - The White House
Dickinson County is an attraction for entrepreneurs due to our affordable real estate, pro-business climate, and broadband. Our mom-and-pop shops continue to thrive due to our overwhelming commitment to community. Residents support each other and want to see local entrepreneurs succeed. We encourage local prosperity.
November is for Shopping and Giving

National Giving Day is a day to share your heart. On this day, many charities and nonprofits open their doors to special donations. It’s a day to remember those less fortunate and help those in need. Nothing says community like togetherness!
