COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Small businesses around the country are being celebrated this week as National Small Business Week has kicked off.
The United States Postal Service joined the celebration by hosting Grow Your Business Day at local post offices Monday. The goal of the event is to help small business owners strengthen their business by utilizing postal products and services created specifically with small business owners in mind.
"Today we're celebrating Small Business Week nationwide. All the post offices around the country will be doing this. This week as customers come in, we'll share what the post office has to offer small businesses. For example, every door direct mail. Every door direct mail is a way to reach your customer in a target area," says Williams Spangler, an acting postmaster in Columbus, Georgia.
The event was free to those who attended.
