The folks at Mussels and More Pottery were just some of the many people visited by volunteers last week during the 2016 Business Walk.

Business Walk 2016 takes economy’s temperature

Local business leaders and municipal politicians once again took to the streets last week

Local business leaders and municipal politicians once again took to the streets last week to take their annual pulse of the business community.

A Business Walk is an initiative that helps local leaders get in touch with the pulse of the business community, build relationships and gather information needed to help stimulate the local economy, according to the Chamber of Commerce, adding that the event was once again a “wonderful success.”

Any businesses that were not visited by volunteer survey-takers last week can still have their say about the state of the local economy and report the state of their business (number of employees, what they like most about doing business here, what they think would help their business improve, etc.) to help the Chamber of Commerce get a proper gauge on things, can feel free to contact them at 250-287-4636 or fill out the survey here.
