This post is to encourage all OABC member companies to support small businesses during this difficult season.  As we are all aware, business is tough now, and especially tough for newly established businesses, small companies, or those who’ve had to close temporarily.  This is a good time for SME’s to think creatively and find ways to keep going, and when they do…it’s our job to support them.
