Suppose you're visiting a new city for the first time. Where do you turn for information about things to do, places to visit, local food, or service providers? Sites like Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Google Reviews are helpful, but are you sure you're getting advice from locals who know the area and maybe even have a relationship with the businesses you're looking for? The next time you really want to get to know a place, consider visiting the local chamber of commerce.
Here in Wilson, we make referrals to local businesses every day. Whether it's foot traffic into our office on Nash Street from visitors here for the weekend, who are looking for parks and restaurants, or phone calls from across the globe looking for a one-of-a-kind handmade gift, the staff at the Chamber connects all types of consumers to our business community. If goods and services are offered by one of our members, that is only who we refer, which is an invaluable benefit to businesses who choose to invest in the Chamber. If you're having difficulty locating that business or item that can only be found in Wilson, oftentimes the Chamber will be able to direct you there. In this way, consider us your "community concierge".
Wilson also has a unique resource for finding out what types of events are happening locally. If you're looking for an easy way to discover public events that might interest you, ExploreWilson.com is the place to go. In the meantime, if you have questions or need information about local businesses, give us a call at 252-237-0165.
