Ardmore businesses offer online option to spur traffic

ARDMORE – In an effort to bolster current commerce, three members of the Greater Ardmore Chamber of Commerce are offering online shopping.

The move comes as region deals with winter weather events and in the wake of three recent ribbon-cuttings that added to the city’s footprint.

According to Chamber Director Yolandia Eubanks, almost 70% of businesses in Ardmore are family owned and operated. With this week’s winter weather forcing businesses to close for an extended period of time, she is urging the community to support local merchants and restaurants once it is safe to do so. 

“While some of us have the luxury of working remotely, there are other area businesses that can not,” she said. “January is typically a slow month for many of our area businesses but then you add in being closed for at least four days and the closures not only affect the business but it affects their families.”

Meanwhile, three Great Ardmore Chamber members are offering online shopping: Main Street Chic – www.mainstreetchic.com; Bean & Co Boutique – www.beancoboutique.com;and Pink Sage Boutique – www.pinksageboutique.square.site.

Pink Sage Boutique was one of the three businesses launching in Ardmore within a 10-day span this month:

  • Pink Sage Boutique –  Formerly an online only shop, the storefront opened at 30517 Ardmore Ave. It carries women’s clothing (sizes XS – 3X), kids clothing (sizes NB – 6T), shoes, and accessories.
  • Bliss and Birch – Opened at 30511 Ardmore Ave. The store carries home décor, gift items, men’s clothing, plus size women’s clothing, perfume and cologne, and designer handbags, purses, and wallets such as Kate Spade and Louis Vuitton. Bliss and Birch is the only storefront in the Ardmore community that sells men’s clothing
    (jeans, khakis, t-shirts, dress shirts, hats, and more).
     
  • Pizza on Main – Opened at 26671 Main St., it offers dine-in (with inside and outside seating) or carry-out pizzeria where you can choose your toppings and see your pizza made right in front of you. They also offer gluten-free options. In addition to pizza, they offer wings, salads, hoagies, and several choices of desserts and select beers and Coke products.

“You can support some of the businesses by shopping online but I encourage you to shop and eat locally when you are able to get out and about because your support can make a difference,” Eubanks said. “Remember that these businesses have invested in our community and we need to support them in order for them to continue to succeed.”
