Small business owners

Post by wolfman » Thu May 07, 2020 10:13 pm

Let’s get this going. I want to hear some feel good stories from all the small business hockey loving owners out there. How about some shout outs from all my peeps that work for a small business owner. Small business owners are a big part of hockey at the youth level. Give an elbow to a small business owner..

I owned and operated my small business for 15 years before I sold it. It gave me a lot of opportunities to give back to our student/athlete pucksters over the years.

I agree the local radio station that covers big school sports has a great slogan. Shop local often and thank them for their support of high school sports. We use our local grocery store, gas station, eatery, and a great bakery.
The closest big town is about thirty minutes away so we. Don’t go there often.

Saturday mornings we drive to our local eatery and meet the in laws and have lunch. No Perkins could come close to the taste of this place. Also afterwards we walk to the bakery next door and pick up snack for the day after we work in the yard, etc.

I agree I love going to the local businesses and picking up supplies for a house project from the hardware store. He knows his stuff!

I raise my glass to all the small business owners in Minnesota!

I’m not sure. We came across the place at Marketfest a few years back. I think I have 4 items in my closet. Very nice people.
