THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WALB) - It's Georgia Small Business Week and folks in Thomasville are celebrating one of their own small businesses this week.
Southlife Supply Company in downtown Thomasville has been named one of Georgia's newest Small Business Rock Stars.
The owners of the shop received the award in Atlanta on Monday.
This is the 2nd year in a row that Thomasville has been represented on a state level for the award.
Shop owner, Heather Abbott, says they're proud at how far their dream has come in just two years of being open.
"It's amazing, it speaks to Thomasville, speaks to Thomas County. It speaks to the business environment that is here, the collaboration that is here," said Abbott. "We're all so different in what we do downtown, we're very blessed to have a very mixed basket of businesses, a lot of specialty type businesses."
175 businesses across the state were nominated for the award.
Other nominees from Thomasville include Farmer's Daughter Vineyards, Fuzzy Goat, and Liam's Restaurant".
