Local business showcase coming to Comox Community Centre

Comox Valley Chamber Commerce hosts Market Place 2019 on Oct. 26

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce invites the community to Market Place 2019, Oct. 26 at the Comox Community Centre.

The Comox Valley is blessed with a rich and diverse business community – a diversity that translates into opportunities for you to find the products, services and expertise you need, close to home.

And from fibre arts to party rentals, financial services to real estate, you’ll find it all at the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Market Place 2019.

“It’s a really nice combination of businesses,” says Chamber CEO Dianne Hawkins.

Hosted at the Comox Community Centre Saturday, Oct. 26, the annual event is the perfect time to recognize Small Business Week and the opportunities business offers the community, she says.

Free to attend, Market Place 2019 is a place for the public to have fun, shop, see product demonstrations and stimulate new ideas, Hawkins says.

From home-based businesses and artisans to local retailers and service providers, you’ll find them here!

“It’s really a one-stop shop for all your needs,” Hawkins says, pointing to the wide diversity of businesses represented. “The Chamber is the voice of business in the Valley and this is a great way to showcase products and services available right here in the Comox Valley – and it’s all in one room!”

Even better, if you’d like to get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping, you’ll also find work from some amazing artisans and crafters, from wood sculptures to handmade Nepalese paper and cards.

Don’t miss your chance to WIN

Two awesome draw prizes are also up for grabs, including a draw for four downhill ski tickets from Mt. Washington and another draw for tickets to four different performances coming up at the Sid Williams Theatre this season.

Showcase your business!

While space is filling fast, a few spots remained available at press time for additional businesses that would like to get involved, Hawkins says.

For more information, contact Kirra at 250-334-3234.
