Small businesses in Pensacola need community support this holiday season

Pensacola families are preparing for the holidays and the small business community is no exception.

And in a year when inflation is skyrocketing, housing costs are rising and many families are cutting back, small business owners say it’s more important than ever that the community and its entrepreneurs support each other.

“Well, No. 1, if the community doesn’t support local business, then local businesses won’t survive,” said Pensacola entrepreneur Tommy White.

Tracy White prepares Wednesday for Small Business Saturday by setting up her mobile clothing store Tracy's Boutique.

Tommy and Tracy White operate East King’s Corner Café, Tracy’s Boutique store and event space at 1400 N. Davis Highway. They’re hosting Black Friday sales — with some casual clothes, accessories, jewelry, and other items at Tracy’s Boutique at 50% off — as well as working to host a Small Business Saturday event with other local sellers.
