About National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day
When is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 29
National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day is today. This March 29 holiday celebrates the millions of small business owners that make up the backbone of this country. These individuals spend countless hours nurturing and growing their young enterprises. The workload demands, and lack of a hired staff, often translate into long and late hours, and many missed family and personal events. But, all in all, they love what they do. After all, they are their own boss.
New businesses have always been a vital, yet not fully appreciated, part of the U.S. economy. On the retail side, they bring different and unique products to the marketplace. They provide stellar and personal service support. When you call, you are more likely to get a real, live person. And unlike big national chains, they know their products. They are outstanding performers in niche markets. In manufacturing, they create many new concepts and ideas, making them creators of new products.
Celebrate National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day by showing your support….shop their stores today, and every day.

History and Origin of National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day
Rick Segel, Poinciana, FL 34759 is the son of the owners of the “mom and pop” this day was created for. This is Rick’s comments:
” This holiday was created to honor the business that my parents started on 3/29/39 in Everett, MA —a hat shop called Ruth’s. It later developed into a woman’s specialty clothing store and moved to Medford, MA, increasing in size to 10,000 square feet with over 2 million dollars revenue until it closed in 1997.”
