Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie declared September Business Appreciation Month at the monthly town council meeting Sept. 14.
The town will spend the month promoting its business-focused programs and celebrating the success of Mount Pleasant businesses over the decades, all leading up to the Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce Business and Community Expo on Sept. 23, the town said in a news release.
“Mount Pleasant is a business-friendly community that would like to show appreciation to the individuals that do business here and contribute to the growth and economic health of our community,” Haynie said in a statement. “Our goal is to provide a fresh and ever-evolving atmosphere to remain a competitive, interesting, and desirable destination in which to do business.”
Haynie made the proclamation alongside town council and Mount Pleasant Chamber of Commerce President Eddie Phipps and representatives.
“The Town of Mount Pleasant supports the entrepreneurial spirit by being a community that not only welcomes new businesses but supports them by providing resources and assistance throughout the start-up process,” Haynie said in the statement.
