UPP Pulls-Up to Support Community Small Businesses in St. George

The UPP recognizes that small businesses are an important economic engine for both local communities and the national economy. Not only do they play an important role in driving business but also in strengthening the community spirit The Business Cowboy

On Saturday 27th August, members of the United Progressive Party (UPP) will show support for small businesses throughout the constituency of St. George. A convoy of supporters will gather at the popular food spot on Pigotts Main Road which features close to a dozen vendors. The group will also make stops in New Winthorpes, Barnes Hill and end in Potters. Along the route, they will patronize chefs, artisans, farmers and other vendors to help spark business activity in the community.

“It is time to support our small businesses, many of whom are struggling to make ends meet. We want to inspire dreamers to become successful, and individuals with ideas to create teams with vision,” said Algernon Watt, UPP Candidate for St. George.

The UPP believes that when more money is spent in the community, not only does this empower small businesses, but the entire community benefits. St. George is the second constituency to be featured in the “small business pull-up” initiative that is designed to spotlight community businesses and help generate new customers and well needed economic activity. It will also provide an opportunity for the UPP team to engage vendors one-on-one and share the Party’s plans and policies to support small businesses.

  1. Tick tock tick tock. I wonder how long it will take before the ABLP Cog this idea.

  2. It is a shame that now election around the corner that politicians want to support small businesses…….smh so in one day businesses will be good? people need support every day like supermarket to make ends meet not just one day they come spend $20 and move on. ALP & UPP full of it. My vote will stay in my breast pocket

      Who currently runs the government? Its a rhetorical question.

    • @ Upset

      You want some Andrews liver salt for your upset stomach ALP supporter?

      one day is better than 0 day or ‘nothing being done for small businesses at all by your ALP party

  3. Has the ABLP done anything to help small businesses get back on their feet? Have they even acknowledged the challenges vendors face? I like what the UPP is doing to connect one-on-one with the small businesses. It is a chance to hear directly from them what challenges they face and what changes they would like to see. We need to encourage persons to spend more in their local communities. Again, good move!

  4. I enjoyed watching it last week. It’s good when you “pull up” others, not just in words but also actions. UPP is showing the small business that they care.
