Badcock & More is Business of the Year

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Carol Tew says she's done nothing special to merit the Chiefland Chamber of Commerce's Business of the Year Award, but to folks around town Tew and her business, Badcock & More, are pretty special members of the community.

The Chamber presented Tew with its top award at its annual Industry Appreciation Luncheon Tuesday at the Usher Center.

Badcock & More, located on Highway 19 on the north end of town is a homey place. You just want to sit and sip coffee and chat all day with Tew.

But there's no idle time.

Badcock & More participates and donates to Haven Hospice fund-raising efforts. It sponsors Little League teams. It donates to Another Way shelters for abused women and children. Levy Association for Retarded Citizens, Tri-County Outreach and the Say No To Drugs program count Tew and the store among its friends.

The Marine Corps counts on the store to be a collection point for its annual Toys for Tots program. Last year folks got a free photo of their child with Santa Claus in return for donating to the Marines' program.

"That is nothing special," Tew, says when the list is recited. "That's what you are supposed to do.
