The Local Business Expo held May 2 was a deemed a success! Over 40 businesses showcased their products and services. And over 200 folks enjoyed a free lunch provided by your Greater Ruby Valley Chamber of Commerce. Therese and Roger from Main Street Market barbequed and served the lunch so a BIG thank you to them for feeding us all.
Those attendees that visited each business, had their card entered into the drawing for the Chamber sponsored $50 cash door prize! Our lucky winners were Pat Day and Penny Peterson from Sheridan, Keith Johnson – Twin Bridges and Bob Hiers from Virginia City.
Thank you to BoB Reimard, our Chamber Director, that spearheaded and organized the Expo.
The Expo is a great opportunity to get your home based business in front of the public and to gain exposure. Attendees always comment that they didn’t know we had so many businesses in our area! Landscapers, carpet installation, gifts, candy, personal care products, catering services and even libraries and wild bird feeders –a very diverse group of businesses. Plan on attending next year to see for yourself why you can really shop local!
