Getting Your Register to Ring Seminar

In today’s society, consumers don’t just want to buy items; they want to buy experiences.  That means building relationships to create long-term customers.  In this seminar, we will look at six basic influencers to increase the likelihood that consumers will buy, while maintaining the integrity that motivated your customers to shop with you in the first place.  

 

Whether you are selling a product or a service, this seminar is for you!  Reserve your spot today by contacting the Chamber office (573) 364-3577 or rollacc@rollachamber.org.

Rolla Chamber to Celebrate Small Business Saturday

Mark your calendars for the 7th annual Small Business Saturday that will be celebrated in Rolla on Saturday, November 26.  On this day, consumers can play a part in supporting our local economy and small business owners by shopping and dining local businesses.

By shopping local and small, the majority of the money stays within our community.  Small business owners support our community, our charities, create jobs, and we appreciate each and every one of them.   Small Business Saturday provides us an opportunity to honor and celebrate the hardworking business owners that are fueling our local economy.

The Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce would like to invite the public to attend a special ribbon cutting on Monday, November 21 at 10:00 a.m. at the corner of 7th & Pine.  During this ribbon cutting Mayor Lou Magdits will be presenting a special Small Business Saturday proclamation. 

For more information on this effort, or for a list of local businesses, please contact the Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce at 573-364-3577 or www.rollachamber.org.
