Fernie’s Chamber of Commerce has touched base with a number the community’s businesses.
Executive director Patty Vadnais says 16 volunteers were on hand for last week’s business walk.
She says they were welcomed by 70 businesses.
“We had a great group of volunteers who came out and we hit the streets of Fernie,” Vadnais says. “Going all the way from our Ghostrider business district to West Fernie, downtown and highway businesses.”
Vadnais says they handed out surveys to identify programming opportunities, collect data for grant applications and to compile a report which should be released in the summer.
Cranbrook’s Chamber of Commerce is holding a business walk Tuesday.
