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. The Town of Abingdon’s Economic Development department has collaborated to create the “BEST OF” Abingdon 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.
“I appreciate the challenges that small business owners face,” said Director of Economic Development and Tourism, Tonya Triplett. “It is my goal to continue to promote small business development in Abingdon, VA.”
