LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Shops in Livingston Parish that were damaged in the August flooding are back open for business and the state wants everyone to know it.
On Wednesday, Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser and Livingston Parish officials went on a tour of businesses that have reopened.
In fact, officials report 70 percent of stores in the Denham Springs Antique District are ready for customers. The lt. governor said he will work to get shoppers in the door.
"Everyday shops are open and don't have people in them, they still have to make their bank note and I get it coming from private business. So we're going to work hard and drive people from Louisiana," Nungesser said.
Officials also unveiled their Christmas in the Village logo, which will be used to advertise shopping in Livingston.
