Weaverville reaches out to help small businesses

Staff Reports

Weaverville – The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone’s daily lives, from dining out to enjoying the beautiful work of the town’s artists. The Town of Weaverville is hoping to make a difference in some of the local small businesses that have been impacted by the Stay at Home order.
“This drastic change from life as we’ve known it has impacted small businesses throughout the country.

“With local small businesses being forced to cease operations, many have had to close their doors and furlough their employees,” said the town in a press release.

“Some businesses across the country have closed their businesses permanently due to the financial strain that the pandemic has placed on them. Town government sees the devastation this pandemic has caused our local, small businesses. The Town wants to help. In an effort to advocate for Weaverville’s small businesses, the Town of Weaverville is launching the Weaverville. Small-Town-Strong initiative. This project will initially take the form of a survey for local, small business owners to complete and provide information about their business needs during these difficult times. Once business owners have provided this information, the Town will develop a central webpage of the town’s website whereby business’ long-term customers and potential customers will find ways to support the businesses, whether by ordering their merchandise online, purchasing gift certificates for later use, ordering take-out, or simply bringing attention their way.”

The survey can be found here: https://conta.cc/2RUqLb4

The Town encourages local small business owners to join this initiative by completing the survey by Friday, April 24, 2020.
