We hope this document is of use. We hope you might find a business you would like to support or learn more about the ones you already do; we hope it can connect small businesses to new customers or even to other businesses with whom they might find commonality. We hope, if nothing else, this document will exist to record a selection of Philadelphia businesses and their stories, as they were told to us this year — the stories of those who provide services to our neighborhoods, work to meet our needs, those who have had to close, and those who, day after day, turn on the lights and open. We appreciate all those who have shared their time, their thoughts, their work with us, on and off the page.
