Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

You’re IT Falcone Creative Design!

Three questions with Lynda Falcone, owner of Falcone Creative Design.

Why did you start your business?

I always freelanced in graphic and website design even though I had a full-time position at a local publishing company. So in 2006 when I was laid-off, it fell right into place for me to start my own business. I was landing freelance work the very next day after the layoff and I haven’t looked back since!

 Finish this sentence in regard to your business: “I wish I could…”

I wish I could duplicate myself so I can expand my business!

 Best selling product/service?

It’s difficult to choose just one service since we offer everything from digital marketing to graphic and web design — we cover it all. My background is in graphic design so I would have to say graphic design.

 How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?

Minuteman Press in Norwalk, they are the best for all my printing needs! Greg Duffey, Joe Brenneis, Jay Fusci, Marsah Mones, and the rest of the gang there. I highly recommend them!
