The Lewis County News would like to take some time to recognize all of our local small businesses throughout our communities. These hard-working folks are huge in keeping our community going. Many of these places are full of friendly, familiar faces who not only consistently put out quality products and services, but in many cases go above and beyond to see that the people of our communities in Lewis County are well taken care of.
There is genuine warmth here that you cannot, and will not find in large box stores. These places are owned and run by people with familial history; or have come here from similar communities and upbringings, or simply wish to become a part of, and thrive in a community such as ours. In the process, all of these places and people contribute so much to the upkeep and well being of this local area, and the families who live here.
Choose to shop local at every chance. To shop local is to feed the soul of your very own community which is an extension of your home. Today, dear readers, think of the latest positive experience you have had with local business and take a small moment to stop in and just say thank you, for being there, and being true. If you were thinking of heading into a larger store today, think about what store locally may be able to offer exactly what you need today.
