On Thursday, Oct. 20, businesses in Campbell River will again have an opportunity to share their insights and opinions through a brief, face-to-face survey on the success and obstacles to doing business in Campbell River – and what can do to keep local businesses thriving.
During the one day Campbell River Business Walk, representatives from the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce, City of Campbell River, Campbell River Mirror and other local agencies will visit with businesses owners and managers and conduct the short survey.
The walking teams will stop by commercial businesses from 10 a.m. to noon and again from 1-3 p.m. to interview business owners and managers in order to gauge the business climate and learn how the chamber can help local businesses thrive.
“This Business Walk builds on the important information gathered from last year’s Walk. It also provides another opportunity to connect with businesses face-to-face in an informal way, so that both organization representatives and businesses can learn from each other,” says Colleen Evans, President of the Campbell River Chamber. “We’ll be taking the pulse of the business community and getting a snapshot of the local business climate at this point in time, gaining useful data around opportunities and challenges facing businesses in Campbell River. The Business Walk will also identify which businesses would like more access to resources and connect them to organizations and support services that can help.”
“This event offers us an excellent opportunity to listen to the local business community, identify common themes for action and bring together local service providers and business representatives to help Campbell River grow and prosper,” says Rose Klukas, Economic Development Officer, City of Campbell River.
