We are getting back to business and figuring out what our new normal is. Many things have changed and we are all in a learning process together. As we begin to get out and about, remember, these changes are new to the businesses and their employees as well. It will take some time to get used these changes and evaluate how to be more efficient in our operations. So, let’s be patient and kind as we navigate our new path and understand what this new normal means for everyone.
Our most engaging social media post of late has been a plea to support small businesses for their marketing and advertising efforts during these trying times. Thank you for supporting our community. Small businesses are the backbone of the Grand Strand. The Small Business Development Center, a partner of the Small Business Administration, defines a small business as one with less than 100 employees. In our area, more than that are known as our larger businesses. Most businesses in Little River are 1-5 employees including their owners. They make up our community. And, they are the most adaptable, if they have the resources. We need to support them in order form them to have the resources they need to stay open.
Thank you for being a partner of our community and supporting our local businesses by shopping local. We are in awe of the way we have all changed to get back to business safely, the extraordinary best practices that have been implemented, and the ingenuity of our business leaders. The saying goes that it takes a village. Together we can rebound and make our village thrive and flourish!
