Resilience – The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
Elkton’s local businesses have had a tough row to hoe this year. Not only have they had to deal with the ravages of a pandemic and loss of revenue, they’ve had to scramble to make an investment to ensure the safety of their customers and employees. Then comes August and with it Hurricane Isaias. Now these small business owners are dealing with the huge mess of flooded basements, no power and further revenue loss because once again they can’t open their doors.
Please keep these small businesses in your thoughts and reach out to see if there’s any way you can help. If you can be there to support them in their recovery, please do so. Small business is the life’s blood of our community and their resilience to continue to fight for a successful future is something we admire and will work hard to promote.
We’ll continue to keep you updated on the following businesses waiting for power to be restored:
- Art Space on Main (Tentatively scheduled to reopen Sept. 1st)
- Elkton Florist
- Showcase on Main (Reopening TBD)
- Spork Cafe
- Brookbend Interiors
