The Greater East Aurora Chamber of Commerce, in its continuing effort to support local businesses, will be hosting a retail peer panel to provide local retailers and restaurants an opportunity to exchange marketing ideas to help bolster their Christmas holiday sales and work to carry that momentum well into the first quarter of 2018. This will help small businesses maintain their viability at a time that is typically slow during that portion of the calendar year.
The event will take place Thursday, October 12th, 8am to 9:30am at the Roycroft Campus Power House/Visitor Center first floor Assembly Room.
The panelists are experienced in the retail industry and will help to kick start discussion with the audience on holiday marketing. The group will be facilitated by Victoria Sturman of Bright & Brainy Creative Marketing and panelists will include Don Vidler, Vidler’s 5&10; Sandy Grunzweig, Marilla Country Store; Jen Reisdorf, The Bookworm; Kelly LoTempio, Small Business Administration and a TJMaxx representative.
Participants will receive a copy of all the discussion points and ideas generated during the meeting.
There is no cost and the program is open to members and non-members. Representatives of business sectors other than retail are also invited to attend.
Please contact the Chamber at 652-8444 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make a reservation.
