Small businesses in Colorado employ more than 1.1 million Coloradans or nearly 50% of the Colorado workforce. Firms with fewer than 100 employees have the largest share of small business employment. Supporting small businesses ensures these jobs remain viable.
Small business means fewer patrons and smaller crowds. As we work to keep our community safe from the impacts of COVID-19, shopping at small businesses helps to slow the spread and keep you and your community safe. It also helps ensure these small businesses make it through this economic downturn.
According to the Small Business Administration, when you shop locally, 70% of your spending stays in the local economy, whereas only 30% remains when shopping non-locally. This means if you spend $100, your community keeps $70. This increases local tax revenues, used to support schools, police, fire stations, roads and more. Local businesses also utilize other local businesses such as marketing, accounting and printing, further impacting the local economy.
