Last Friday (Jan 9) we were excited to celebrate our ribbon cutting ceremony with the Longmont Area Chamber of Commerce. Even though we had our Grand Opening in September, this was a special time with members of the Chamber of Commerce and just a few friends to be welcomed into the business community.
I’m excited about being a new member of the Chamber of Commerce and being more a part of the Longmont community. Through the Chamber I’ll have opportunities for social networking get-togethers before and after hours and the chamber also has some business groups and training programs.
Our store and production facility is a little out of the way; not in the downtown retail area. We wanted it that way so that we could have more room for production. But none the less, I am always looking for ways to let people know that we are there. I was glad that the Ribbon Cutting brought in people who were not aware of our company or our store. I enjoy getting to explain the nature of our business to people.
Longmont is a great community to live and work in and I am happy to have my business here. I look forward to many years of growth and the ability to help support my community in a number of ways.
Are you a member of your Chamber of Commerce?
