A new survey reveals their leanings on the issue.

Small-business owners largely see the potential repeal of Obamacare as a good thing, according to a new survey.

Two-thirds of business owners surveyed by small-business marketing website Manta are in favor of “repeal and replace,” CNBC reports.

Many report that they’re dissatisfied with high costs for health coverage, according to the report. Another complaint is that purchasing insurance through the Affordable Care Act’s health exchanges is too complex.

Additionally, nearly 70 percent of the Manta survey’s respondents felt that the Trump presidency would be a good thing for their business, according to CNBC.

Slightly more than 50 percent of respondents had voted for Trump.

The survey, conducted in late December and early January, included more than 1,500 owners of small businesses.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
