Mayor National Small Business Week Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Friday afternoon, Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajardo paid special attention to small businesses in the area.

“I do hereby proclaim May 2 to May 6 of 2022 as National Small Business Week in Corpus Christi, Texas, and I encourage all residents to go out and support small businesses throughout our community,” Guajardo said.

Southside Beauty Care Owner Eric Williams discussed the impact small businesses will see from recognition like this.

“That is a big step, because whenever you have large corporations taking over everything that small businesses provide, at a lower price point, it puts a damper on the whole community, because the community can’t keep any money for themselves,” said Williams. “So, by actually having a small business week that promotes small businesses, I can actually see small businesses getting the leverage that they need in order to be able to compete and pay their bills.”

Williams told 3NEWS the goal is to continue to have money circulate throughout the Coastal Bend.
