It’s nice to see activity and excitement growing in McCreary County.
New businesses, brick and mortar as well as private, at-home entrepreneurs, are popping up locally, and that’s truly exciting to see. In this week’s edition, The Voice spotlights a busy grand opening for South Fork Clothing Co. on Main Street, the recent opening of Luca’s Ice Cream Shop in the Oaks Plaza, and the highly successful McCreary County Public Library Shop Local event, where 30 local small businesses, artisans, and entrepreneurs gave holiday shoppers the opportunity to shop local. Additional brick and mortar businesses opening lately and offering a variety of wares for both personal use and gift-giving include Red Roof Surplus on Main Street, J-N-M Liquidators on Hwy 27, and Merchandise Liquidators in Bestway Plaza. Additionally, the Hong Kong Chinese restaurant has re-opened.
If we want McCreary County to grow and flourish, it’s up to us to support our local businesses. We actually have more opportunities to shop local than one might think.
We just need to think creatively when it comes to shopping locally for ourselves and others.
Do you have a friend who loves coffee? Buy a gift card at Bradley’s Coffee Shop. Do you and your friends enjoy Mexican, Chinese, fast food, country cooking, or a blast from the past? If so, meet up at a local restaurant for your favorite meal. Also, don’t forget the local delis and convenience stores, offering great food as well.
Patronize local nail salons, beauty salons, and barbers. Don’t forget, gift cards from these local businesses make great gifts.
Looking for a gift for your favorite outdoorsman? Big M, Big South Fork Outdoors, Lay’s Farm and Feed Supply, and others have what you need. Who knows? Bobby Duncan’s might also have just what you are looking for!
When shopping for furniture or appliances, remember our hometown furniture stores. Local brick and mortar liquidators also offer great deals on small appliances.
Of course, there’s always The Voice. A personal or gift subscription to the local newspaper is always nice!
The list of places to shop in McCreary County goes on and on. We can’t name them all in such little space! However, the businesses are here, and they all need our support. For shoppers, it just takes a little bit of thought and effort to remember to shop local.
Next week, The Voice will feature special advertisements to help readers shop local at McCreary County businesses.
After all, it is up to us. Shop local and support McCreary County.
