Shelbyville Public Square still stylin’

Saturday, July 18, 2020

This is the first in a series of photo features from Shelbyville’s business district. From summer fashions to the ideal place to get pie and a cup of coffee, Shelbyville Public Square has a lot to offer, yes, even in the midst of a pandemic. No doubt businesses have taken a hit from COVID-19, but continue to shine with their brilliant flower arrangements and window displays. Business owners ask the community to continue to support them, those some are limited in the way they can conduct customer service right now. See the Facebook page of each public square business for hours of operation and social distancing rules. The Chamber of Commerce began during the pandemic an “Open for Business” Facebook page, which provides a wealth of details about local establishments. Shelbyville’s Public Square business district has a long history within the community. Those from the 1960s era will particularly remember the clothing shops, the 10 cent store and shoe stores. While fashions may have changed over the decades, there is still a hometown spirit which remains around the public square. Please support your local store owners.
