Chamber President encourages people to support local businesses

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – The COVID-19 threat continues to make its impact around the world and the effects are being felt as well here in Aberdeen.

Gail Ochs, President of the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce, encouraged people to continue to support the local businesses.

She said it’s hard to tell if, or when, restaurants would prohibit indoor seating and provide just carry out or delivery service. Some local businesses have already gone that route.

Ochs said she is hoping that there will be some relief in sight for small businesses.
