National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day

National Mom and Pop Business Owners’ Day is celebrated on March 29th of each year.  According to the son of ‘Mom and Pop’, “This holiday was created to honor the business that my parents started on March 29, 1939 in Everett, MA — a hat shop called Ruth’s.  It later developed into a woman’s specialty clothing store and moved to Medford, MA, increasing in size to 10,000 square feet with over $2M revenue until it closed in 1997.” (Rick Segal, Poinciana, FL)
