2018 “BEST OF” Abingdon, Virginia
Do you have a favorite breakfast spot? Do you have a favorite grocery store? We are searching for Abingdon’s BEST- chosen by you.
The month of May is Business Appreciation Month throughout Virginia. Town of Abingdon, VA Mayor, Cathy Lowe, and the Town of Abingdon Economic Development department have collaborated to create the “BEST OF” Abingdon, VA initiative.
This initiative will help promote businesses throughout the Town of Abingdon, and give them extra promotion during the month of May. Abingdon businesses play an essential role in strengthening our community through their innovation, creation, expansion, and employment of area workforce that preserves the economic well-being and quality of life for all our citizens. This initiative is a small token of the town’s appreciation for all the businesses and what they do for our community.
“As a previous small business owner for nearly 30 years,” said Mayor Cathy Lowe. “I appreciate the challenges that small business owner’s face and it is my goal to continue to promote small business development in Abingdon, VA.”
The “BEST OF” initiative will feature a public driven survey with twenty-eight (28) different categories. No one knows Abingdon better than the people who live here do or visit here do, so cast your VOTE for the “BEST OF” Abingdon, VA. The survey will run from March 8, 2018 to April 5, 2018.
