The majority of NAHB members are small businesses and NAHB is proud to support Small Business Saturday® on Nov 25. This annual event provides an opportunity to recognize the importance of small businesses and their vital contributions to local communities.
The housing industry in particular helps build a strong economy and vibrant communities, contributing 15% to the GDP. Constructing 100 new single-family homes creates 297 full-time jobs, $28 million in wage and business income and $11.1 million in federal, state and local tax revenue.
Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010 to help strengthen local economies. Today, it’s a holiday shopping tradition celebrating a greater nationwide movement dedicated to uniting communities and supporting all kinds of small businesses.
NAHB is encouraging its members to also join this nationwide initiative that encourages the public to shop at small businesses, particularly on Saturday Nov. 25, and throughout the holiday shopping season.
