State Representative Brian Hill (R-Zanesville) has announced that House Concurrent Resolution 32 passed out of the Ohio House. The resolution recognizes and celebrates independent businesses.

In 2014, HCR 32 officially would designate the week of Monday, June 30th through Sunday, July 6th as “Independent Retailers Week.”

“Independent retailers provide so much to our local economy,” Hill said. “Owners have taken a great risk to start up their business, often competing directly with the larger company-owned chain stores. The jobs that independent retailers provide are a great asset to the community. Hopefully this bill can bring some recognition and support to keep our independent retailers going strong.”

An independent retailer is a single business that operates by itself and is not part of a larger company chain.

HCR 32 will now head to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.
