Our local businesses and attractions are what make Rowan County an original destination for visitors and residents alike.
Rowan County Tourism, Rowan EDC, and the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce have all come together to provide guidance and resources for our workers and local businesses impacted by COVID-19.
These resources are kits that local businesses can use to help spread the word that they are open during this time. These kits are not only helpful for the business, but our Rowan County community as well. Our shop, eat, and visit local emblems will help the community understand how important supporting local is. There are many reasons why supporting our locally owned businesses is a win-win, but the best is for every dollar spent at small businesses, 67 cense of it stays in the community.
There are small and large kits for Restaurants, Retail Business, and Site/Tourism Attractions. By selecting the type of business, you can adjust your kit to accommodate your business.
Originals are continuing to support originals all throughout the county.
Rowan County knows its food! Blessed with abundant water supplies from creeks and rivers and good soil in much of the county, our county thrives on and celebrates its long history of farming. Nowhere is that more evident in mid-summer than a drive through western Rowan, where fields of tall green corn meet each other, covering the landscape.
There may be “money on the ground” coming toward Rowan County in The American Jobs Plan, now before Congress, and it is good news for all of us who travel on roads and bridges that the North Carolina Department of Transportation has declared structurally deficient.
