City of Largo Celebrates Small Businesses this November

Small businesses are essential to the fabric of Largo’s community – creating jobs, energizing the local economy, and supporting the community’s vibrancy with ingenuity, perseverance, and philanthropy. In recognition of these entrepreneurs, the City of Largo is encouraging residents, businesses, and visitors to recognize and support small businesses during the month of November, known as Largo Small Business Month. This special month was created by the City Commission to promote awareness of the impact local businesses have on the quality of life in Largo. 
As part of the activities for Small Business Month, the City of Largo is doing the following: 
There is no charge for temporary events during the month of November, the busiest shopping month of the year. This will provide an opportunity to host various events such as sidewalk sales and on-site promotional events at no charge to them in anticipation of the holiday shopping season. Although the $75 fee will not be charged, businesses must still submit the temporary event permit application prior to the event. 
A free financial webinar hosted by Valley Bank to provide Largo businesses with valuable information they can use to manage and grow their business. 
The City will be conducting a social media campaign to shine a spotlight on Largo businesses that contribute to making us the community of choice in Tampa Bay and sharing their Small Business Why.  If you are interested in having your business spotlighted during this month, complete a form at Selected businesses will be featured on the City's social media pages.
