Chamber member benefit of the month

Chamber members are able to have their business cards and brochures on display at the Chamber office. If you'd like to take advantage of this member benefit, please drop off your items! We are also happy to include your business brochure, flyer, promotional items or coupons in the welcome bags we provide to new utility customers in Estherville. Thanks to all the businesses who provide items for these bags - it's an easy way to get your business name out to new Estherville residents.
