Bob Duffy Statement on Small Business Saturday 2020
“It’s hard to think of a year that Small Business Saturday has meant more to local businesses here in the Greater Rochester/Finger Lakes region. In the face of the ongoing pandemic, your support can mean the difference between the continued existence and success of beloved restaurants and retailers, or their permanent closure.
We ask our community members to #ShopROC in whatever way they can this holiday season – whether it be online, purchasing gift cards, curbside pickup, delivery, or any of the creative ways our businesses are adapting and continuing to serve their customers.
Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce continues to advocate at the local, state, and federal levels for desperately needed financial support and common sense mandate relief. By pulling together, we will make it through this difficult time and emerge a stronger and more resilient community."
