The coronavirus pandemic has hit the business community very hard, especially when it comes to small businesses. Ariel Short, Director of the Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce in Shelbyville, says that there’s been some creativity needed, but things are looking up.
Shelbyville was fortunate enough to actually have a new business open in the midst of all the craziness, and so far things are good.
Usually the Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce would hold an annual banquet in March. They are still planning to hold the banquet, but with things still up in the air, Short says it won’t be until June.
The annual banquet doubles as awards season for local business. Awards aren’t going away, but they will be voted on this year. Short says more information on that is coming soon.
Short appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our studios in downtown Shelbyville.
