What a year… am I right!?! It goes without saying that there are plenty of negative aspects of this past 12 months that we could focus on. But at the Scoop, we try our best to focus on the positive, the things we can control, and how we can positively impact the community. I think I can speak for the entire team when I say we are extremely grateful for so much, including our neighbors, clients, and local businesses that we’ve had the pleasure of working with this year.
Looking back, our team, along with our Scoop contributing authors, have written some amazing articles on a variety of topics that are near and dear to our hearts, including small business, retail and commercial development, real estate, racism, design, home maintenance, surviving a pandemic… and a little of everything in between. Thank you all for your contribution. Below you’ll find 20 of our most popular posts from the year.
