If ever there was a time, which local businesses and patrons should band together, this is it. We have seen the COVID-19 crisis close our favorite hangouts and shops. While it’s difficult for us to not be able to patronize local businesses in the traditional sense, we can still commit to shop local.
As a locally-owned and operated small business, Archadeck of Columbus strongly encourages everyone to support local businesses in any way you can. None of us remains completely untouched by the current crisis. Even those, who have been able to keep their employment, have undergone changes in the way they carry out their daily work duties. Let’s all try to be cognizant of the effort it will take get our local economy back on track as we begin to reopen to full capacity over time, and let’s join the movement now.
Small businesses are the backbone of our country’s economy.
According to the 2010 United States census, small businesses accounted for over half of the nation’s total private workforce. There were 28 million small businesses in the U.S., with 18,500 large businesses. A small business can be a mom and pop bagel shop on the corner, or a private manufacturing plant with 500 employees. Supporting local small businesses means that we are supporting residents – our neighbors, friends, and family – who are employed by these businesses. Whether it’s designating two nights per week to order out from your favorite local eateries, or hiring Archadeck of Columbus, to build your new porch, deck, or patio, we urge you to help keep our local economy going.
Our commitment to supporting local small businesses.
Archadeck of Columbus employs local sales staff and builders for our outdoor living projects. We are also committed to our local outdoor building products manufacturers.

Additionally, our biggest specialty hardscape materials provider is Unilock®, with a regional manufacturing facility in Rittman, Ohio.
Small business fact: During our nation’s recovery from the recession, 2009 – 2011, 67% of new jobs were created by small businesses!
