Small Business Saturday, a day to support small business and what they bring to the community, was created several years ago to add to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On Tuesday, Senator Chris Murphy was in Danbury to talk with small business owners. He was joined by Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton and members of the Small Business Administration.
Murphy says this is a great opportunity to support businesses that support the community.
Murphy also spent time at the new Innovation Center-Hackerspace, connected to Danbury Library. The Innovation Center will host 5 companies that have used the Innovation Center/Hackerspace as well as SBA Resource Partners SCORE and SBDC to help counsel and/or launch their respective businesses GreenWell Financial, Born TM, Attention Holdings, Skyflix.com and Luke's Toy Factory.
The stops during the Small Business Walk included:
• At Home Care
• Antonia’s Beauty Salon
• Relvas Travel Center
• Bem Bonita Fashion
• City Center Danbury
• Faltom Jeweler
• Main Street Dental
• Benai Enterprises, Inc.
