Faces of Local

We started this campaign, called “Faces of Local”, to highlight our businesses and to show the faces of those who work there. This campaign reached across many types of localities, from restaurants, to shops, to service industries. All of these Downtown Wytheville locations offer something special and unique to their customers and patrons. We hope you enjoy this listing to learn more about the great places in Downtown Wytheville.

Curves recently joined our downtown district! Caroline Simmons began working for Curves in Nashville years ago, while she was acting at Nashville’s renowned Wild Horse Saloon. From there, she caught the attention of Curves International Directors in 2009 and began working for Curves International, leading training sessions and establishing new Curves facilities in Europe and the Middle East.

Caroline moved back to Wytheville in 2011, where she first appeared in the Wohlfahrt Haus Dinner Theatre’s production of “Guys and Dolls” in 2001. She then began working for Curves of Wytheville and soon purchased it in February 2012. In 6 months, she and her staff quadrupled the membership, earning her title “Rookie of the Year 2012” from Curves International. She holds certificates with Zumba, Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA), Strong Nation, Nutrition and Weight Management from the Cleveland Clinic.
Curves of Wytheville has achieved multiple honors including “Franchisee of the Year”, Wytheville Chamber “Entrepreneur of the Year”, “Life Changer” award, “Social Media Influencer” award, and “The Best of Virginia”.
