Chamber seeks to attract more businesses to Abernathy

ABERNATHY, TX (KCBD) - Abernathy is trying to attract businesses to the area, and recently they've seen a few new ones come to town. A bakery, specializing in pastries, just opened up on the Fourth of July, and a new boutique also recently opened its doors.

The Abernathy Chamber of Commerce says the organization is committed to promoting business in the area and trying to make new businesses successful.

"One of our prime things is to get more businesses here and promote our town from a stand point that we are progressive, and we have a very good school system, and we're very close to Lubbock. So what our main job is to get people out here," says Sharon Kester-Fair. She also hopes to bring in new bigger businesses that provide several jobs in the area.
