Small Business Support

With many local businesses facing a mandate to close their doors to the public for the next month in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the slogan “shop local” is taking on a new meaning for the small businesses that play a vital role in Yankton’s economy.

Yankton Area Chamber of Commerce Director Carmen Schramm says while customers can’t physically enter these businesses, they can shop with them through online or telephone sales.

Schramm says the Yankton Chamber is developing a gift card program to help support local businesses.

Schramm says more COVID 19 information for retailers and consumers is available on the Yankton Area Chamber of Commerce website.
