Bad timing for businesses

Eddie O'BrienChairman, Silverthorne EDAC Business Relations Committee

Recently, TiAmo Ancora Ristorante and Custom Audio (two Silverthorne businesses) were devastated as a result of a massive flood in their building. Imagine, at one of the most critical times of year, when your business relies heavily on the gift giving season to have to shut the doors of your business. It’s no secret that running a business in Summit County is challenging, especially with the shoulder seasons. On behalf of the town of Silverthorne and the Silverthorne Economic Development Advisory Committee (EDAC), we would like to remind residents that it’s not too late to stop by these businesses and purchase gift certificates as stocking stuffers. It’s important to note that this will be the only cash they will receive in this very critical season. The Summit County community can help, take care of our own, by continuing to support TiAmo Ancora Ristorante and Custom Audio (located on West 10th Street in Silverthorne) even before they open their doors again for normal business. Bring your cash or checks, these guys don’t even have credit card access. These businesses will be back, they are resilient. But what better way to prove our holiday spirit than by helping our local businesses stay a float (literally).
