The national economy may be struggling, but the Chamber of Commerce hit the streets Wednesday morning to make sure businesses around Bryan and College Station aren't.
Chamber members and local leaders - including mayors from both cities - visited more than 100 businesses, meeting with owners and managers to gather information about how the businesses are performing, while listening to their thoughts and concerns.
The list of stops included businesses of all types, from restaurants to printing companies, and included all areas of both cities, so that the chamber group could get a good gauge of how the area companies were doing.
"We're just trying to visit every business in any area whether they're a chamber member or not, because a business that's not a chamber member may have some issues that we could help them with,” said B/CS Chamber of Commerce President Royce Hickman.
College Station Mayor Ben White and Bryan Mayor Mark Conlee also gave chamber leaders a proclamation declaring March 4 as “Chamber Day”.
