As a resident and small business owner in Lansdale, and as chairwoman of the Lansdale Borough Economic Development Committee (EDC), please join me as our committee rolls out a new program recognizing our local small businesses. 2020 has been an enormous challenge for everyone, especially small businesses across the county -- many have had to cut employees, pivot their business model or close for extended periods of time this year – and the EDC is looking to shine a light on those businesses that make Lansdale thrive.
Over the next few months, members of the EDC will visit local Lansdale Borough businesses to speak directly to business owners and managers about their business and how this pandemic has affected them. We are starting a weekly #BusinessSpotlight on Lansdale Borough social media channels to bring awareness to residents about these specific businesses, to spark growth and to build upon the support for our businesses in Lansdale. When we shop local, everyone wins. --Carrie Hawkins Charlton
