This blog is the struggles for small business owners.

Radford Welding is a small business on the west end of Radford. As a small business owner, we urge people to shop locally. Not all small businesses can afford pricey advertisement. We get new customers from word of mouth or recommendations. Facebook does help small businesses and most have one. However, unless you update your status hourly, you get lost in the news feed. Most business owners don't have the time to do so. The City of Commerce helps businesses get listed as a small business within the city. However, there is a yearly fee. The fee is hard for some if not all small businesses. Some if not all small business owners can barely pay the necessary monthly payments. The struggle is real for business owners all across the country. I ask what do we need to do as a whole to help small businesses? I am hoping that this blog brings light to the struggle of small businesses.

Sun is shining. The weather is getting warm. The lawn is in need of mowing. You have been waiting all winter to take the boat out on the water. Then you realize that your lawnmower, weedeater, and or boat is in need of repair. Don't worry Radford Welding can fix both or either one of them.

In today's society when you are looking for a reputable or any welder, the click of a mouse is everything. However; does that website you click on tell you anything about the welder? Reputation means everything when wanting something done correctly at an affordable price. Radford Welding, we do just that. Calvin is a well-known welder with an impeccable reputation. He will not tell you what you want to hear, but what he can or can not do. We also offer reasonable rates. We are off the beaten path just located behind Glencoe Museum on Unruh Drive, but you won't be disappointed with our services. We consider ourselves one of Radford's hidden gems.
