Welcomes Cafe: Urges support for all Downtown Businesses

Commerce is definitely making a comeback in a lot of small cities, and Columbia is one of those cities, the writer says.

Beth Rutherford writes:
Stopped in yesterday to welcome Cafe on the Square and meet the people working there. I know it is going to be a definite asset to this little city and I can't be happier it is open again. The breakfast sandwich I ordered was very, very good and I am sure the rest of the menu will be the same. Their opening has certainly improved the life of the businesses on the square and the lives of Adair county residents. Let's all get out there and support not only Cafe on the Square but all the small businesses located downtown. Commerce in downtown areas is definitely making a comeback in a lot of small cities and Columbia is one of those cities. I for one will be a strong supporter of all those little, personal enterprises and the people who have risked so much to take the chance to improve their own lives as well as the lives of everyone in this area. that exist here and hope others will do the same. --Beth Rutherford
