Business Expo Helps Local Business Owners
ASHLAND - The Southern Boone Chamber of Commerce gave local business people a chance to show off their products. The Home-Based Business Expo from 10-4 on Sunday gave local entrepreneurs and shoppers the opportunity to help one another out. Business owners hoped to sell some early holiday gifts.
One organizer told KOMU local businesses without store fronts wanted the opportunity to showcase all they had to offer. "With our small community, we're located between Jefferson City and Columbia, and a lot of folks shop in Jefferson City and Columbia. We wanted to see if folks would be a little interested in taking care of our local vendors and spear a little bit of local economy," said Melissa Bonderer, President of the Southern Boone Chamber of Commerce.
Bonderer hopes this will be successful enough to do again next year.
