Black-Owned Businesses in Downtown Florence

National Black Business Month is celebrated each year during August to recognize and uplift Black business owners and entrepreneurs. In Downtown Florence, we have worked diligently to develop an inclusive district that embraces diversity and are proud to have one of the most diverse districts in the state of South Carolina with over 43% of our small businesses being Black-owned or operated. We hope that you will join us in supporting these Black-owned businesses during August as well as the rest of the year. For suggestions on how to celebrate Black-owned businesses, check out this article of responses gathered from Black business owners across the country.
