Pueblo small business expo offering sales, job fair May 4

As young children, Jackie Jimenez and her sisters made band instruments out of cardboard boxes and jammed to music on their unique drums and guitars.

“Mom and Dad taught us to work with what we have,” Jimenez recalled.

Fast forward to today and that resourcefulness has helped Jimenez and her sisters, Valerie Young and Christine Griffith, to start their own gift business. Young started off selling inexpensive homemade crafts at a church bizarre and then coaxed her sisters to join forces with her.

The sisters will be among the 70 to 80 vendors who will showcase their products and seek new employees at the Southern Colorado Small Business Development Center’s Small Business Expo and Hiring Event from 10 am to 4 pm Wednesday, May 4, at Pueblo Community College’s student center , 900 W. Orman Ave.
