Crowe completes first round of small business tour in Metro East

To highlight individual social-distancing efforts and give business owners an opportunity to voice concerns, State Sen. Rachelle Crowe (D-Glen Carbon) has completed the first round of her small business tour, visiting nine locally-owned businesses within the Metro East region, according to a press release.

“From visiting retail employees to optometrists, every business owner I had the pleasure of meeting with is taking the pandemic seriously and imposing mask requirements, social distancing and deep sanitizing,” Crowe said. “My goal with this tour was to highlight their efforts, while also offering a casual conversation in order to have a better understanding of the effects of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

To invite different perspectives from business owners and employees in all industries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Crowe visited:

• Kloss Furniture, in Edwardsville

• Aphrodite Skin Care, in Maryville

• Financial adviser Dustin Jumper’s Edward Jones office, in Maryville

• Escape Salon & Spa, in Edwardsville

• Behavioral Health Alternatives, in Wood River

• Leiber Vision Center, in Alton

• St. Peters Hardware & Rental, in Alton
