Atkins Shows Support for Local Businesses During Small Business Week
State Representative Cory Atkins showed her support for small, local businesses in Concord on Monday, May 21st, the first day of State House Small Business Week in Massachusetts. She visited local businesses to thank them for their contributions to the economy and to promote shopping local this summer.
“Small businesses are the backbone of the Commonwealth and the nation,” said Atkins. “That is why I am always delighted to spend money in my community. Also, shopping locally is more
fun because you go visiting while you shop. You reunite with members of the community, you see how they are doing, you nibble on their jelly beans, and you buy their products.”
She visited two businesses to thank them for their contributions to the economy and to promote shopping local this summer. “It was hard to choose just two businesses to visit, but this has been one of my favorite assignments,” said Atkins. “I am glad legislators were asked to do this.”
Atkins visited Grasshopper Shop, a women’s clothing and accessories boutique at 36 Main Street run by Rebecca Bilodeau and owned by the Bilodeau family for over 30 years. During her visit Atkins said “People are always asking me where I get my suit jackets because they are striking. I tell them the Grasshopper Shop, where the outdoor displays always beckon a would-be shopper to come in and see the latest styles. The Bilodeau sisters are more than helpful. There is not a friendlier place to shop for distinctive, affordable clothing.”
She also visited Debra’s Natural Gourmet owned by Debra Stark at 98 Commonwealth Avenue. This natural food store opened in 1989 and has since been named as one of the Top 100 Natural Product Stores in the country. “You cannot think of health food without thinking of Debra,” said Atkins. “She has won awards for her entrepreneurial skills, and she was an anchor for the economic development of West Concord Village. Her annual early-bird pajama party creates a sense of community like no other event in town.”
