The current high rate of inflation is tempering how much Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) business owners can spend on advertising.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately 16,000 small businesses in the Augusta area. There is one thing each of these owners of the companies has in common, whether they own a hardware store in Aiken, a furniture store in Evans, or a restaurant in Martinez. They are all experiencing the negative consequences of inflation.

In a monthly survey conducted by the National Federation of Independent Business Owners (NFIB), inflation now ranks second as the single most important problem companies face. A year ago, inflation was barely an issue.
