An area state legislator is launching a social media campaign which will feature local small businesses.

State Sen. John Connor, D-Lockport, is launching the campaign in order to support and promote small businesses ahead of the holiday season, according to a news release.

“Small businesses bring so much life to our communities,” Connor said in the release. “Through the challenges of the pandemic, they worked to provide necessary services to keep our economy running.”

Connor is encouraging small business owners interested in being featured on his social media pages to provide information about their businesses by filling out an online form.

Businesses that are invited to participate include restaurants, retail shops and businesses that provide personal services like spas and salons.

“As we enter the holiday season, I hope residents will remember to shop small,” Connor said. “Now more than ever, supporting our small businesses is vital. Please join me in helping our local businesses get back on their feet.”
