MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (September 19, 2016) – In celebration of Mount Pleasant’s growing, dynamic business community, Mayor Page has proclaimed this week, September 19 – 23, the 2016 Mount Pleasant Business Appreciation Week. Business Appreciation Week’s goal is to showcase and recognize the success of businesses within the town, while providing them the opportunity to network with each other and connect with their Town leadership.
“Our business citizens are important members of our community and should be celebrated. They create employment opportunities allowing citizens to support their families, reinvest in the community, and achieve their needs and aspirations,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page.
This year for Business Appreciation Week, the Town partnered with the Mount Pleasant Business Association and the Moultrie News to honor longstanding Town businesses through Town Anchors, a new, community-sourced awards program. Businesses were nominated online by the community; the nine businesses with the most nominations, fitting the program criteria, were selected as the 2016 Town Anchors.
Congratulations to the winning businesses: Pitt Street Pharmacy, Mount Pleasant Seafood, Advanced Hearing Care, Royall Ace Hardware, Mount Pleasant Animal Hospital, AgentOwned Realty, SeamonWhiteside, Loy Harn Jewelry, and Atkinson Pools & Spas.
