JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - KLEK 102.5 FM hosted an event Saturday that gave local female and minority business owners a chance to showcase their businesses.
Almost all of the businesses at the Feb. 16 event were locally-owned small businesses.
Laganzie Kale, general manager for KLEK, said that it’s important to remind people that local businesses of all kinds are in the area for them to take advantage of.
“That’s how we make our community stronger, by using our platform to shine a light onto the things that other people are doing,” said Kale, “That kind of helps build the economy because when you shop local and support each other, then it kind of just keep circulating throughout the community.”
There were several vendors at the showcase Saturday, with a variety of different business industries to choose from.
