Small businesses in Niagara Falls that lack a website - and are missing out on possible customers - can get some help establishing an online presence at a workshop Thursday.
The event, which coincides with Google's "Get Your Business Online" Week, is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls, 101 Old Falls St.
Google is offering web development tools and one year of free hosting for companies' websites.
The event is sponsored by the City of Niagara Falls, Niagara USA Chamber of Commerce and Niagara University's Global Tourism Institute.

Niagara Falls Mayor Paul A. Dyster recorded a PSA about the event:
