NJ1015 Salutes Small Business
According to the Small Business Association, New Jersey has more than 766,000 small businesses. These businesses are the backbone of many of our communities. Pizzerias, dry cleaners, hardware stores, all part of what makes New Jersey great! Our local small businesses also create employment opportunities and add to the tax base of our towns. What would NJ look like without them?
