National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day is always March 29th. This day is meant to celebrate small business owners and the individuals who spend countless hours growing their small business into a successful enterprise. Small business owners often have to do all the heavy lifting themselves and work overtime without pay. This sometimes comes at the cost of personal and family events. In retail, Mom and Pop shops bring different and unique products to the marketplace while providing a personal service that can't be supported by a large national chain. In manufacturing, they create many new concepts and ideas, making them creators and patent holders of new innovative products.
