How You Can Support Small Businesses During Construction

As the Wheeling streetscape project continues to progress, residents and visitors can expect to see traffic cones on Main and Market well into 2024. While this construction might slow down our commute, it shouldn’t slow down our support for the small businesses located in the heart of Downtown Wheeling. By making an effort to support these businesses, you are not only helping them stay afloat during a difficult time but also contributing to the overall health of the community.

The Wheeling Heritage Media team checked in with Downtown business owners, as well as local leaders, to learn more about how we can come together to make a significant impact on the success and future of these businesses, and ultimately the community as a whole.
