National Small Business Month is observed across the country in May. But because more than 93% of Delray Beach companies are small businesses, we celebrate We ♥ Small Biz Month to show our love and recognize all the ways small businesses make our community better. Help us spread the love on social media by using the hashtag #SmallBizDelray all month long!
