FRIDAY, MARCH 29: MOM AND POP BUSINESSES

Profile America — Friday, March 29th.  While openings of a major department store or a branch of a big-box chain are often welcomed by shoppers and communities, they are also the cause of some concern.  Small local businesses face greater competition, yet those small businesses are an outsized engine of economic growth.  Additionally, they are important distinguishing features in local communities.  That's why today is Mom and Pop Business Owners Day.  There are about 27.1 million business firms in the U.S., but over 21 million of them are without paid employees.  The census will contact some 1.75 million enterprises starting in a few months as part of the periodic survey of business owners, a large percentage of them in the "mom and pop" category.  Profile America is in its 16th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
