The awards are a way to say thank you to businesses that have worked hard to stay open and find new and creative ways to operate. Silver City MainStreet is grateful that they are located downtown. 

Thanks to a generous donor, Silver City MainStreet is able to give each business owner an award plaque. The latest recipients are Kris’ Unique Boutique, Our Paws Cause Thrift Store and Gems by Therese.

Kris Lowry, owner of Kris' Unique Boutique states, “During the downtime it allowed us to be able to re-organize, clean, and get hand sanitizer and mask signs ready. 

We are proud that our customers are following the rules and did what they could so that the businesses can stay open and everyone can be safe.  We are thankful for our community and the community has told us they are thankful that we are open.”
