“Shopping Local” just prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lunsford began noticing more folks starting to shop local. In the months since, “the word of ‘Shop Local’ has really come in this past year,” she said. “I think it was starting to before COVID, but after COVID, they (the community) realized they need to support local; and they’re still supporting local.

“COVID hit us hard — a lot of our businesses had to shut their doors for two months — from March 21 until May 29, we were closed,” she continued. “But I feel, our community really supported us when the doors did open and get us through that. I had many customers tell me they were shopping and supporting local as much as they could — eating out a couple nights a week, going to the stores and shopping. I feel we did have a tremendous amount of people come out last year during COVID to support us, so I’m hoping they’ll carry that on throughout this year.”

I don’t know how early the committee starts trying to book guests for the Superman Celebration, but I’d like to nominate a return for John Schneider. I’ve always missed the years he has been there, and I really want to meet him, lol. Either way I appreciate all that y’all do, and I can’t wait until June!
