A good time to remember the business community
Oconee’s business community hopes the holiday weekend will be what it needs to help shake-off the losses from this week’s weather days. And the leader of the county chamber of commerce says the calendar should help. Today is Valentine’s Day—a good day to remember the love of your life with a purchase from one of the local stores. And Monday is President’s Day—a holiday known for store sales. “It’s really important we do get out of the house,” says Jillian Lusk of the Oconee Chamber of Commerce, referring to two days this week when the ice and snow virtually shut down the county and most of its commerce.
