SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Several new small businesses are boosting Sylvester's economy.

Simple Wireless Solutions and Rainey Used Cars recently opened.  Daniel's Vape Shop opens tomorrow. The Sylvester- Worth County Chamber of Commerce says small businesses sustain the area's economy.  

"These small businesses which we have over 500 businesses in Sylvester- Worth County have helped sustain our economy, so we welcome them too as well as the bigger businesses too. They all create jobs," said Karen Rackley.  

Rackley says the chamber's "Stop and Shop" program focuses on attracting shoppers to small businesses in the area.
