RED BANK, NJ – Small businesses are the backbone of the U.S economy.  Firms with fewer than 500 workers accounted for 99.7% of those businesses. They create jobs in the local community and your tax dollars stay local.  Shopping at one local business helps other local businesses, they offer more unique products and keep communities like Red Bank diverse.  You’re probably working for one now. 

Why Support Small Business?

Small Businesses create more jobs.  Who are they?

First, they’re not all talk.  They are doers, calculated risk-takers, scrappy, ambitious, and disruptive. They always choose growth over profit, are willing to take on financial risk and are always, always, optimistic.

And you, as a local customer, you should support the independent business as an act of respect - acknowledging the tremendous risk and challenges that they’ve taken.

Check out why they make this country great - see the remarkable stats from the SBA’s 2018 Small Business Profile.

Small Businesses Support Your Local Community.  When you spend money in Red Bank the dollars stay in the community – helping our schools, parks, infrastructure and providing safety to our town.  Local business owners form partnerships such as the Red Bank RiverCenter, Red Bank Business Alliance and the Navesink Business Group.  All who give back to the community – because more than likely, they live here too.

Red Bank is looking great with its Victorian-themed decorations and lights, so visit all of your favorite Red Bank businesses for fun holiday promotions.
