Small Businesses = Big Gains for Our Towns

Supporting “Mom & Pop”

 

Today is “Small Business Saturday” – an initiative started nationally to raise support for the independently owned retail shops, restaurants and service providers in communities across our country.  In Sussex County and our beach towns, small businesses are truly the backbone of our economy.

 

We have always had so many wonderful boutiques and restaurants; however, as any small business owner can tell you - including my own “mom and pop,” Bette and Sal Gallo, who started their real estate business four decades ago - opening and sustaining a “small business” is no “small task.”

 

Imagine what our towns would be like without the shops that sustain our local economy.  These locally owned and run businesses essentially make Delaware beaches unique places to live and set us apart as real departures from suburbia. The more our small businesses thrive, the better it is for all of us: locals and visitors alike.

 

Local Market

As many real estate professionals like to say, “real estate is local.”  Our Delaware beach market is unique and inherently local: buying a home here is perhaps as “shopping local” as you can get!

 

The Lee Ann Wilkinson Group is thankful for the support of our customers, local colleagues and services, and we are happy to support other local small businesses.

 

Happy local shopping!
