Small business celebrates


Decatur, Ill (WAND) – It’s National Small Business week and Decatur small business has a lot to celebrate.

“Our unemployment numbers are down and our employment numbers are up,” Chamber of Commerce executive Mirinda Rothrock told WAND News.  “We’ve seen an increase of store fronts filled in the downtown area.  I continue to hear good things, folks are hiring.”

Rothrock’s comments were made at the Small Business Expo at the Decatur Civic Center.  The expo has been an annual event for more than 30 years.
