Happy 804 Day, Richmond! Let’s get out there and celebrate all things that make our little city by the river one of the best places to call home. Elaine Digges, a small biz hype woman always on the move, has managed to round up a list of ways local business owners are tipping their hats to the 804.
“804 Day acknowledges, embraces, and celebrates Richmond,” says Digges. “Of course, the area code encompasses much more than the River City, but this lens is focused on Richmond’s small businesses. In a time where prices are increasing, these businesses and orgs contributed their resources and more to help bring everyone together.”
