CHATTANOOGA, Tenn – Local Business is at the heart of every community. Imagine not having your favorite local coffee shop around. What if you couldn’t get your hair done by the only hairdresser in town that does it right? Who checks your teeth when your local dentist’s office can no longer keep their doors open? These small businesses are an often overlooked but vital part of our daily lives, and right now they are suffering.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, small businesses are being impacted heavily in order to support social distancing measures. Decreased amounts of customers can weigh heavily on these small businesses who may rely on this income to keep the doors open and to their employees.

Supporting local business also supports the local economy. After all, the people who own these businesses are often your friends and neighbors. We can’t think of a better time to pay it forward by supporting small businesses who have always been there for you.
