Buy Local/Support Small Businesses of the Week
DeKalb, Newton and Rockdale counties

Local businesses are a linchpin of our community, and they need our support now more than ever. Georgia Piedmont Technical College (GPTC) is committed to supporting businesses in DeKalb, Newton and Rockdale counties.

To that end, GPTC’s Economic Development Division has collaborated with our local chamber and economic development partners from DeKalb, Newton and Rockdale counties to launch the Buy Local/Support Small Businesses of the Week Series. The purpose of the series is to highlight local businesses in our communities and connect you to them during this unparalleled time.   

Please take time and visit the websites of the businesses highlighted, like their social media pages, purchase their products, or share the businesses’ information with a friend. Supporting our local businesses is vitally important to the overall economic development landscape of our region.
