Local Business Gains Recognition

Antique and Uniques, a local business in Fairbury recently had an excellent in depth article written on their business which has in turn lead to increased customers.

Luke Smucker with the Fairbury Blade wrote this article on Diane Pawlowski’s business.  Pawlowski has said, “Two ladies were recently in my store, saying they had seen the article in their local Galesburg newspaper and that is why they came to Fairbury!”  The articles are great ways to bring people to these towns and see all that Fairbury has to offer.

Antiques & Uniques has been running strong for the last 15 years.  In the article, Pawlowski is quoted as saying, “One of our older customers gave me some advice that I stick by; he said, ‘You make your money when you buy.’ So, you’ve got to buy it at the right price in order to sell it at the right price.”

This article is posted on the Fairbury Blade Facebook page.

“It is great having a newspaper that encourages small town shopping and writes articles for their supplemental papers,” says Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of the Specialty Shop group.  “These articles help with exposure of all of our businesses in Fairbury.  They bring people to the area that otherwise would not come.”

McKeon and all the businesses hope for continued exposure.
