Did you know more than 99% of all the businesses in the U.S. are considered ‘small’? Small businesses also make up the overwhelming majority of businesses in downtown Shreveport and are a significant tax base. They provide goods, experiences, jobs, and create the vibe that helps make us unique.

May 1-7 is their week. Quite honestly, they should be trumpeted 364 days a year (we’ll leave the one day for the big boys), but we’re going to make the most of what we’re given.

Over the next week, we’re going to be sharing snippets about some of our nearly 700 downtown businesses through graphics like these on Facebook and Instagram, on local TV news broadcasts and on Loving Living Local on KTAL6, KSHV45 and KMSSFox33. You should be able to catch these stories and interviews multiple times throughout the day. We hope you will learn more about these businesses and then come eat, shop, and become a supporter of these businesses
