During this week when I am away, the Yelm Community blog is featuring Yelm Community businesses who are locally owned and operated. While this town is being inundated by multi-national corporations with names like Wal-Mart, KFC, Applebees, & Taco Bell that expatriate their income back to their corporate headquarters, the backbone of this community’s retail establishment are locally owned and operated firms. While the donations these large firms give to the city are wonderful, the true contributions adding to the quality of our area are these unique businesses whose owners live here, send their children to our schools and involve themselves with pride in their hometown, adding in grand fashion to the richness of our town.
So, we are saddened to see one of our downtown core’s businesses close (Toscano’s).
While the City of Yelm’s new electronic reader board and Chamber of Commerce tout the public to “support our local businesses”, the Yelm Community Blog touts readers to “support our locally owned businesses”.
LET THESE BUSINESSES KNOW YOU READ ABOUT THEM ON THE YELM COMMUNITY BLOG!
Look for a new blog entry on December 19th
