Store owner Stephanie Clayton and her husband, Bill, came to the SBDC in 2019 wanting to purchase an existing business. They worked with an SBDC consultant to create a business plan narrative and three-year financial projections. An SBDC consultant worked with them, completing the business plan in ten days, and was approved for a loan to purchase the business in August 2019. Circle J Western Wear has been in Monahans, Texas for more than 28 years and is a significant community supporter and is very active on social media. Stephanie and Bill also received assistance from the SBDC Disaster Consultant in 2020 to survive the pandemic, and even continue to thrive as an institution in the community.
