Good Afternoon, Chamber Members:

In light of the Coronavirus and safety concerns, we are still urging community members to shop local and support local businesses.

Members, if you are planning to offer new or different services (i.e. online shopping, delivery services, pick up services) please contact me so the Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce can help communicate how you are going above and beyond to offer your products and/or services to community members.

EXAMPLE: Cigar Box - St. Clair is now offering a pick-up service.

Pick Up Order Steps:
1.) Call your order into the store
2) Give payment information & approximate time of pick up
3. Call when you arrive and they will happily bring the order right to you
Phone Number | Cigar Box – St. Clair (570) 429.1190

ANOTHER EXAMPLE: According to Savas Logothetides, owner of Wheel Restaurant – Pottsville, if a drastic decline in foot traffic is observed, Wheel will offer a delivery service. Because it has not yet been warranted, the delivery service is not available. However, if and when that service needs to become available, we would like to be able to help communicate services like this to community members. https://www.wheelrestaurantpottsville.com/ 

MEMBER EVENTS: If you are postponing or canceling your events, please let us know. We will update our Weekend Update with postponement/cancellation notices.

How can you help local businesses in difficult times? 

*Buy gift cards now and use them later

*Buy items now and pick up in the future

*If you know a business owner, ask how you can help

*Keep memberships current

*Order takeout from your local restaurants
