support local businesses


What would Matthews be without its local businesses? This year has brought difficult times for many businesses from mandated closures, occupancy restrictions, and safety concerns for our essential workers. We created Matthews Made to raise awareness for our businesses – to help them prosper again – and to ultimately strengthen our town’s economy. 

Help us support our local businesses by sharing this initiative with your friends and family. Matthews supports local because supporting local means supporting our neighbors, our friends, and our families.
