As we march toward spring, business is bloomin’ in Isle of Wight County. This month the spotlight is on The Main Event by Emily & Cindy, a full-service event planning business and gift shop that is a one-stop-shop for all the main events of life. There is a new sign shop in Smithfield – Grafik Trenz, and two Smithfield businesses relocated within town. If you’re a business owner, there are lots of events planned for March, so be sure to check out the full events calendar.
This month kicks off with Genuine Smithfield Restaurant Week, so our spotlight is on the 13 locally-owned and operated establishments that are participating. This is the perfect opportunity to savor an old favorite or try something new! If you’re interested in becoming a horse owner, the Isle of Wight Extension office is offering a Horse Ownership 101 program. The featured property this month is the Charlie Daniels Racing Property.
Happy New Year! For the month of January, the spotlight is on First Colony Engraving, which recently moved into a storefront in Downtown Smithfield. If you made a New Year’s resolution to get healthy, maybe the Luter YMCA can help! If you’re a small business in Isle of Wight County, you’ll want to attend the Small Business Roundtable and learn about the Existing Business Program – it’s a FREE resource! Our featured available site this month is located at the corner of Brewer’s Neck Blvd. and Route 17/Carrollton Blvd. This is the perfect location for retail or hospitality users.
