PRLog - Nov. 12, 2012 - Palmer, Alaska--The Alaska State Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year winner is Teresa Roy, owner of Cover ups in Palmer, Alaska.

Roy, a native Alaskan and living in her family’s homestead just outside of Palmer knows what it means to be a small business owner. Starting her business out of her home as more of a necessity than anything while she renovated her living space, now has a shop on Palmer’s main street and has been at that location for more than nine years.

Her business continues to grow and she is now a mentor to several small businesses that she shares her store’s space. This partnership and collaboration of many creative artisans have helped her business grow almost 400 percent in the last few years.

When the winner of the 2012 Bill Bivin Small Business of the Year award was announced in October, Roy was very honored to say the least. ‘I’m the first business that’s won in the Valley, and I’m the smallest business that’s won,” she said. “They consider a small business to be under 100 employees and I have just one.”

According to his nominating application, Greater Palmer Chamber of Commerce director, Ralph Renzi cited Roy’s dedication and record of community service as an example to why she should be the recipient of the award.

Roy is very active in Chamber events, and in her local community including; her yearly work with Colony Christmas, leadership at the Palmer Economic Development Authority and the Downtown Merchants Association.
