Two More Fredericksburg Small Businesses Closing

It seems like another Fredericksburg small business owner closes down almost every week. Sadly, it’s probably more often than that.

We just found out that The Cropper’s Corner in Central Park is closing soon. They are having a huge inventory and fixture liquidation sale.

Today my wife and I headed over to BC Cafe on Route 3 by K-Mart, only to see a big “closed” sign in their window. They are selling the entire business and/or equipment.

I’m sad to see any small business owner going under. We’re all in this together, and we should do what we can to support one another. Perhaps if I had ordered a few more sandwiches and coffee at BC Cafe, they’d still be open today.

The ripple effect of small businesses closing is empty commercial storefront and office space. That hurts the real estate people around town, who end up having to raise rent for other businesses. It’s a nasty spiral that doesn’t help anyone.
