DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (KELO) — Businesses big and small are being affected by the pandemic. While supporting your local businesses, can be a good way to keep your community thriving…. it’s challenging this year as more people choose to stay home.
Katie Wilson is the owner of The Mason Jar in Dell Rapids, she says throughout the pandemic, her online sales have been doing well, however it’s been a different case at her storefront.
“We have an Arizona storefront and here in Dells, they’ve really slowed down, foot traffic I would say has been cut in half and we are so lucky that we have our online store because if not we would definitely be in trouble like so many small businesses are,” owner of The Mason Jar, Katie Wilson said.
The chamber of commerce is celebrating ‘Dell Rapids Small Business Week,’ to encourage people to shop at small businesses.
