Area business in competition for award

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) An area business is in the semi-finals for National Independent Small Business of the Year

Walkabout Outfitter is among the final 25 left from 249 nominees. The award is to recognize that small businesses contribute greatly to the economy, and comes with a 40-thousand dollar prize.
The owners appreciate the recognition of all the work that goes into running a small business.

"Doing everything from taking out the trash to doing the bookwork to doing the buying, the whole nine yards, we've done it all," says owner
Tina Miller. "So after 20 years it's exciting that possibly we might get a little recognition for that, and that's one of the big excitements of it."

Online voting continues through December 10.
