Tami Langdon, community development coordinator for the Town of Mocksville, hopes that the community will come out to enjoy the Concerts on the Square and support the local shops and restaurants while they are at it.
“Although COVID has become part of our lives and our daily business, we are surviving and will continue to grow. The Station, 185 N. Main St., provides music throughout the week and on Friday nights. Our merchants have their doors open with great summer sales. During these times, it is important to buy local and support our local merchants, services, and restaurants. Without these businesses, downtown would not continue to grow; I appreciate all the existing merchants as well as the new merchants. Downtown Mocksville is a great place to shop, dine, wine, and visit! Downtown Mocksville….’Time Well Spent.’ ”
