Meet Local Business Owners

Small business owners are the backbone of our communities. They are the folks driving our towns forward. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced these business owners to adapt to a new normal. We asked small business owners in Montgomery County, PA to tell us how their business has been affected by the coronavirus and how they are finding new ways to grow and provide for their communities.
