San Diego, CA (February 6, 2012) – National Entrepreneur Week is coming up from February 18 – 25, 2012, so AIM Mail Centers locations are offering free mailbox rentals to local small businesses. As small business owners, AIM Mail Center owners know how important it is to support their fellow local businesses.
“We believe that small businesses play a key role in creating jobs,” says Steve Goble, Vice President of Marketing Communications for Annex Brands, franchisor for AIM Mail Centers. Between 1993 and 2009, small businesses were responsible for 65 percent of the 15 million net new jobs created.
“It can be expensive to start a business, so we want to help local entrepreneurs achieve success by reducing their costs with free rent on a mailbox,” Goble continued. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, it costs between $25,000 and $50,000 to start a business.
Goble said private mailboxes show a street address, which many small business owners prefer compared to a P.O. Box address. In addition, AIM Mail Centers receives UPS, FedEx, and USPS packages, keeping them secure behind the counter until the recipient claims them
