Now, after all the positive attention the Bonsack Chick-Fil-A has gotten, Christmas Décor Roanoke, the local businesses that hung the lights wants to keep those smiles coming.
“It’s just a nice, warm, positive feeling. Everybody deserves that, especially after the year that we have had,” said owner Adam Anderson.
