How One Small Business Is Changing Main Street

This weekend, shoppers across the nation will celebrate Small Business Saturday, a day devoted to patronizing local businesses. In this video, we hear the story of how one small business is reviving the local economy of Hamilton, Mo.

“They brought in employment—I think they employ over 100 people now. I’m sure they’re the largest employer in the city and very possibly in Caldwell County,” says Mayor Allen Gentry. “They came in and improved a lot of our buildings that were in disrepair and actually maybe dilapidated and going to fall down.”
