(SAVANNAH, GA) A week before Christmas, I got a call from the Savannah Morning News letting me know that Carriage Trade PR was selected as Small Business of the Year 2013. I sat there on the phone in disbelief. I even questioned her and said, can you double check – I can’t believe it. When she reaffirmed, I started to cry. This was the best Christmas present EVER! I have received so many cut out copies of the article and congratulation letters from the business community – I will cherish each one. To the staff at the paper, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. http://savannahnow.com/exchange/2013-12-30/carriage-trade-pr-2013-small-business-year#.UsqmpY0nuZg
