Governor Evers, First Lady Celebrate “Shop Small Wisconsin,” Encourage Wisconsinites to Shop Local

For the second consecutive year, Gov. Evers has proclaimed Nov. 26 - Dec. 31 “Shop Small Wisconsin” across the state. This initiative encourages Wisconsinites to shop local & support Wisconsin’s Main Streets and small businesses during the holiday season.

Gov. Tony Evers and First Lady Kathy Evers shared a video message celebrating “Shop Small Wisconsin” and encouraging Wisconsinites to shop at local small businesses during the holidays.

Small businesses are the hearts of many Main Streets and communities in every corner of the state and are powerful drivers of local and statewide economies. Since 2020, Gov. Evers has invested more than $1 billion of Wisconsin’s federal coronavirus relief funds in economic resilience and supporting small businesses, including through the We’re All In and Wisconsin Tomorrow Small Business Recovery Grant programs. A recent analysis of state allocations under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) demonstrated that, as a share of federal aid received by states, Wisconsin is the top state in the country for aid directed to overall economic development and the top state in the country for aid directed to assist businesses. Last week, the governor also announced that Wisconsinites now have more than 7,000 new or expanded small businesses and nonprofits on Main Streets to support this holiday season thanks to efforts through the Main Street Bounceback Grant Program
