Small-business owners are generally known to be strong, resilient people. And perhaps that’s never been truer than this past year in a post pandemic era. Everyone has been impacted by COVID-19 in one way or another. For small-business owners, the pandemic has not only been a threat to health and safety, but it’s also been a threat to their very livelihoods. To be honest. No one is not out of the woods yet. Small-business owners desperately need the support of their elected officials, council representatives at large and Department of Commerce especially in the 54th West corridor of Wynnefield Communities.
These constituents need these stakeholders to be present providing needed encouragement that revitalization of their community is still ongoing assuring them that a path forward is imminent. Ironically, the United States is approaching the one-year mark of when COVID-19 ravished the Country with 27.2M cases and 468,000 deaths. Philadelphia’s total cases so far have reached 113,224 with 2,970 deaths. The first case diagnosed February 21, 2020 in the U.S. and Philadelphia would follow on March 10, 2020 with its 1st case. For the 1st time there is steady decline bringing hope to a city impacted by its effects.
Entrepreneurs are becoming creative, adapt and press on in ways that everyone can admire. One such business is Slither Salon & Beauty Studio, widely recognized in the City of Brotherly Love by its signature brand “Get Slithered”. Ms. Shakita Preston, CEO has been a proud member of the Wynnefield commercial community since 2005 and is emerging as a Top Small Business in a Post Pandemic Era. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Ms. Preston has only closed her salon business door once in accordance with mandated CDC guidelines. Ms. Preston is considered a renaissance member of this community always serving on local committees and programs to support small business growth. Slither Salon is a stark contrast in a community where many businesses have already retreated to their residences and closed their shops.
“Despite these overwhelming circumstances Slither Salon & Beauty Studio is providing economic growth, continued employment opportunities, value-added strategies whatever lies ahead, even when the whatever really isn’t known.” Ms. Preston has been able to analyze the current environment, lean on her expertise as an entrepreneur, demonstrating innovation and resilience. Ms. Preston’s revenue has far exceeded Pre-COVID-19 levels and she has never had to lay-off or displace workers since the pandemic hit nearly 12-months ago (February 2020).
