Small business is the backbone of any community, and that is certainly the case for Selma. We would like to take this week to thank our local small businesses for all that they contribute to our community!


Notice as you travel around town and attend various events the significant investment our small and medium-sized businesses make in our community. From sponsorships to capital investments, from physical improvements to volunteerism, Selma’s small biz community adds value to our community each and every day.


So next time you stop in to buy a Chicken Swirl from Marks Mart, a bouquet from Pringle Petals, lawnmower blades from Alabama Powersports, a gift from Carter Drug Co., or to pick up your laundry from First Avenue Dry Cleaners, make sure you say thank-you. Better yet, make sure you #ShopSelmaFirst.
