New businesses in the area are always a positive thing, and what is just as pleasing is when “hometown folks” move back to start them. Such is the case with 1999 Woodland High School graduate Chip Smith, owner of Smith’s Towing and Recovery.
Smith studied business at the University of Maine at Machias and spent close to the last twelve years in the Bangor area as a manager with Pepsi. There, he dealt mostly with independently-owned convenience stores, appreciating the direct interaction with the small business owners and staff.
