Free Radio Ad
We have an exciting opportunity to offer all of our businesses! Beasley Broadcasting has invited our members to their office in Las Vegas to produce and record IN STUDIO, a 60 second radio ad. Beasley Broadcasting host five local radio stations across the valley such as 102.7 The Coyote, Star 107.9 and Old School 105.7 among others. Keep in mind, this is a free opportunity that only requires your time, you will meet at the studio in Vegas, allow 30 minutes in studio which will be recorded and edited, and most importantly, you can bring a script or your 30-second elevator speech. Hurry though....we need to compile names to Beasley by January 2. Please send an email to email@example.com if you are interested!

So how did your retail business do during the holiday shopping season? Some current customer trends over the past 20 months have indicated that retail small businesses have accounted for 72 percent of the growth in total retail sales, as reported by Mastercard. Shoppers are looking for an experience that feels personalized and unique. It's not surprising that Millennials are a driving force in the shift; they understand that shopping local means they're supporting their community.

Whatever holiday you and yours celebrate, the Chamber would like to wish everyone a restful, relaxing and joyous holiday season. We have enjoyed working with everyone over the past year and look forward to yet another successful year in 2016. We have enjoyed meeting new businesses, re-connecting with old ones and celebrating with those that have come out to show their support for all of the events. We thank you for your partnership! Merry Christmas!
