DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce held its first ribbon-cutting in 143 days at David’s Catfish House.
Ribbon cuttings have been so few and far in between because of COVID-19.
Commerce members say the virus has hurt growth in the area, but there are now plans for more ribbon cuttings.
“We are starting to trying to get back into the rhythm of having more and more ribbon cuttings,” Cliff Mendheim said. “We obviously are going to be abiding by the governor’s social distancing and mask ordinance, but nevertheless we still wan to go about celebrating these businesses and do everything we can to help them thrive and grow even under these hard circumstances.”
Mendheim said the chamber is doing everything it can to help local businesses grow.
