How Edmond Locally Owned Businesses Compete with Chains
The article mentioned Kennedy Tire & Auto Service to discuss the positive impacts of being a local business in Edmond, as well as a Chamber and ELO member. The Journal Record states, "One challenge of the store is educating people about locally owned businesses in the area and countering the perception that bigger is better.

As the voice for business, the Chamber recognizes the struggles faced by locally owned business. That is why we promote and educate small business owners through three programs: Edmond Locally Owned, Small Business Council, and Small Business Owners Alliance.
