Editorial: Supporting local growth

Published 4:26 pm Sunday, May 7, 2017

About six weeks ago, The Tribune started a series about commercial property available in downtown Ironton.
The goal was simple, to use our resources to be a community partner that could be a conduit for those looking to open a business with an available location that met their needs.

To date, two of the locations featured have since been occupied by new businesses, and while the economy hasn’t been what it once was, these new business owners have taken a leap of faith in opening in downtown Ironton.

We applaud their confidence in our community to open a business along with any others who, despite challenges that can arise, are willing to work to make our county’s city, villages and townships a better place for us to live.

It can be a daunting task to start a business, with potential fear and doubt always wanting to creep in.

We hope that the community supports all of our current and new businesses because that is the only way we will grow and improve our outlook.
