What Made These Amarillo Businesses Close In 2022?
The past two years have been tough on small businesses. While some have been fortunate enough to survive, we've had to say farewell to those who weren't as lucky.
Here are some of the businesses we've said goodbye to in Amarillo in 2022.
Business That Have Closed In 2022
There isn't just one type of business that has been affected. Everything from sports teams to grocery stores has struggled to cope.
Zach's Club in Amarillo caught everyone by surprise when it decided to close its doors. Market Square in Stinnett was a blow to the small community.
Others, like The Vault, found ways to carry on as something new.
Reasons For Closing
Many businesses that closed this year have pointed to Covid-related issues as the main driver behind the decision to close. The effects of the pandemic on small businesses are still lingering.
Many times "economic reasons" are listed. The current state of the economy and staffing issues have made the problem even worse.
Be Sure To Support The Businesses You Love
If there is a small business in town that you love, be sure to support them. That doesn't just mean spending all of your hard-earned money there.
Share their social media posts when they have a sale or event. If you like a business in the area, don't keep them a secret. Tell people you know about it.
