Businesses rely on virtual shopping to survive

RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – This week kicked off the Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce’s Virtual Cash Mob events.

The event started as a new way to help small businesses get through the Stay at Home order. Earlier this week, the Chamber’s Facebook page featured Blue Magnolia.

Tomorrow at 10 a.m., Beckley’s Carpenter Loft Primitives will go live on the Chamber’s Facebook page to show off its items for sale.

“We’re going to do flags a lot of outdoor items like flags, magnets, yard decor and maybe some candle warmers,” said Paula Mullins.
If you miss tomorrow’s event, you can still visit The Carpenter’s Loft Primitives Facebook page to place an order for pickup.
