Small Business Week

The Postal Service offers a range of products and services for small businesses.

USPS will hold thousands of events across the nation to mark National Small Business Week, which is May 5-11 this year.

The activities include Grow Your Business Day events in Post Office lobbies, where small-business owners and other entrepreneurs can learn about USPS products and services that can help them attract customers and grow revenue.

Postmasters and other managers recently received a Business Connect kit to help them host Grow Your Business Day events.

Additionally, the Postal Bulletin’s April 25 edition included a National Small Business Week kit that has instructions on hosting Grow Your Business Day events; a sample news release; and information about Every Door Direct Mail, Informed Delivery and other products and services that can help small businesses.

The U.S. Small Business Administration, which organizes National Small Business Week, has more information on its site, while has details about postal products and services for small-business customers.
