Montgomery County businesses who have been anxious to begin serving their community once again are back open and dedicated to following CDC safety guidelines, writes President and CEO of The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Montgomery County Pam A. Kelly.
Small businesses are the backbone of the Montgomery County economy and many have been serving the community for generations.
The way business can safely operate has significantly changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and this has negatively impacted many businesses.
Small businesses invest everything they can into the surrounding community through donations and sponsorships, and now they are in need of support back from their community.
There are many ways to support a business besides shopping or visiting in person. With a like, comment or share on social media, a business is able to stay engaged with patrons and reach new customers.
Participating in online events such as webinars that a business offers and writing a review online is a good way to ensure establishments may continue to operate beyond the pandemic.
