Staunton city leaders showed support for downtown Thursday night. Mayor Lacy King and City Council issued a proclamation supporting Small Business Saturday, a nationwide effort initiated by Women Impacting Public Policy to boost local business.

King says small business makes up a huge part of employment in the U.S.

"These folks, they're entrepreneurs and they open their small businesses, make a great impact on the country and on the economy. And without them you can imagine…the economy would be a heck of a lot worse, especially the employment,” King said.

Small Business Saturday is November 30 in downtown Staunton. There'll be entertainment, lots of discounts, and activities.
