This month the spotlight is on Trailer Country, a horse trailer business that has grown and expanded its location in Carrollton since opening in 2010. We also celebrated during a grand opening and ribbon cutting for the new Roses Express store, which replaces the Maxway in the Smithfield Shopping Plaza. If you’re a woman-owned business, you’ll want to check out the resources offered by the Women’s Business Center at the ODU Business Gateway in Norfolk.
This month the spotlight is on Hallwood Enterprises, Inc. of Smithfield – the recipient of the Business of the Year Award from the Isle of Wight-Smithfield-Windsor Chamber of Commerce. “Hallwood worries about pallets so you don’t have to.” We would also like to congratulate Economic Development’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Danny Hughes, President of The Hughes Agency in Smithfield.
This month, the spotlight is on The Hitchin’ Post, a new take-out restaurant in Smithfield serving up BBQ, fried chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs. We are highlighting County businesses that won The Virginian-Pilot’s Best of 2014 Readers Choice Awards. We’re also celebrating Business Appreciation Month in June. The Windsor Farmers’ Market at Country Boys BBQ is opening this month and will be open on Saturdays 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. through August 30. There are some important changes to our stormwater permit process, and we have a cute little retail/office space on South Church Street in Smithfield that is for sale. All this and more…Inside the Isle.
