How are small businesses doing in your town?

This article from the New York Times - Tech Hit This Small Town Hard. Now, Locals Hope It Will Fuel a Revival - came out a few days ago. It's about a small town in Wales that lost a lot of shoppers due in part to the growth of big online retailers. Now they're using technology (like free WiFi and Square!) to help rebuild their shopping district and attract more customers. 

 

This got me thinking - is your area experiencing anything like this? How has business been since people started shopping more online? Have you or your local government done anything to promote small business growth?

I’m in central Michigan and it’s been a busy busy start to the summer here! People are buying and even getting little extras that in years past they held off of. So all good in Michigan!
