Small business

Small business is the backbone of almost every community not only in Kankakee County, but throughout the nation.

SPRINGFIELD — A new survey shows that many small businesses continue to struggle to pay rent on time, and the numbers are even worse for Illinois.

The survey was completed by Alignable and incorporated more than 3,500 small businesses across the nation and examined how these businesses are handling higher renters’ rates during July.

According to Alignable’s head researcher Chuck Casto, Illinois is one of the states seeing many businesses struggle.
