Local Business Highlights
In the midst of this surreal time, we remain hopeful for what cannot be stifled: our community spirit. Some may be hesitant to venture out and be closer than three feet from our neighbors. Life feels paused in many places. Yet the narrative is different in other spaces. In particular, our local businesses are open, moving forward, and focused on providing us their trusted best.
In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, as a locally owned business, Macon Magazine is steady. Ever committed to supporting our community of advertisers, the great stories, and this entire Central Georgia community. We are gathering here a list of news about local businesses and their missions regarding any COVID-19 related updates.
We asked the question, how can we help each other? It is important now, more than ever, to support our local businesses in any way we can. Macon Magazine is here to promote he positive, give readers something to do for good, to know for good, and to find connection in the face of separateness and fear, together. Check back regularly for updates.
