Mayor’s statement on ‘Small Business’ Saturday

It is ‘Small Business’ Saturday, where we should bring attention and our dollars to local businesses.

I feel it is important to shop local. Shopping a local Tukwila business means a portion of the State sales tax stays local to Tukwila (.008%), and many local Tukwila residents work in the City thus providing employment opportunities; and many of our local non-profits receive greater support from Tukwila businesses and these businesses invest in our community.

Having so many wonderful businesses in our community supports pricing competition and diversity that leads to more choices here in Tukwila.

See you at the stores!

– Allan Ekberg
Tukwila Mayor
