Williamsport Sun-Gazette Feature

We are in the paper!!!! Featured on the FRONT page of the Business section this past weekend, Pat Crossley from the Williamsport Sun-Gazette wrote a lovely article about the business. You can read the full article here!

Some might see this and recognize us or wonder who we are. More importantly, some might read the article and actually be prompted to get in their car and come visit us. And for that, we are so grateful!

Features like this are absolutely vital to small businesses and mean so much more than just having a nice picture in the paper (but that’s totally cool as well!). We want people to get to know us, know our story, what brought us here, why we’re choosing to make the changes we are … and this article did a great job of telling our story.

One of the most important points in the article, that I was so happy to see highlighted, is that we understand the importance in a region like this of supporting local. As a consumer, it’s sometimes easy to forget local business options when there are ‘the big guys’ like Target, Wal-mart and Wegmans to choose from. BUT communities cannot thrive on big names alone. It’s essential to the economy to support those small businesses who are working hard to make a name for themselves and be a part of the fiber of the community.

Realizing that doesn’t mean we are just sitting up here asking people to come out and visit us without taking action ourselves. That is why, not only Frank & I, but our full staff also get out and make sure to patron some of this area’s unique businesses, restaurants, bars and retailers … because it’s super important!

Thank you again for your continued support!
