More businesses popping up in Sheridan

Posted:

People in Sheridan are noticing some new stores opening up just in time for the holidays.

Driving down Coffeen Avenue you'll notice Autozone, Verizon, and GNC have all set up shop.

Autozone and GNC opened on Monday, while Verizon opened last Friday.

So many new stores opening suggests Sheridan's economy is getting stronger or even growing. Chamber of commerce officials believe more business owners are taking advantage of the resources and business climate in Sheridan.

"I think that people are starting to realize Sheridan is a great place to start a business or to grow a business, and so we are having national chains looking at us," said Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce executive director Dixie Johnson.

Verizon actually moved the business to a new location. But the demand and local economy are strong enough that a move to a larger, more visible facility was warranted.

"People didn't know that we were over there. But the main reason for the move was because we wanted to get a bigger store that had the better technology, with the new computers, the newer displays," said store manager Angela Peterson.

Johnson also says she's noticed more established businesses in town adding jobs.
