The Chamber's Canopies on Courtland Business to Consumer Expo is always one of my favorite events because we have the opportunity to meet so many people within the Park Ridge community! This year we had record crowds and perfect weather. It's a great location to be next to Hodges Park where the family activities are happening during the Taste of Park Ridge and they always spill over to the booths. Thank you for putting on another great event!
This was our first year participating in the Canopies on Courtland event and we truly enjoyed it! We were able to meet a lot of great, new people, and now have 4 winners for services at our location after we open.
Since joining the Park Ridge Chamber, all of the events that we have attended have been awesome - we love connecting with other local businesses. Best yet, I found my forever chiropractor Dr. Whitney! I also cannot wait to attend the upcoming Business After Hours event at FFC this June.
"The Park Ridge Wine Walk was a GREAT idea! Great exposure to businesses in Uptown too. I heard a number of people saying, "I didn't know this [business] was here." Would I do it again? Yes, I would definitely do it again!"
My wife and I had a great time at the wine walk and already plan on attending the next one. The best thing about the walk was getting introduced to all the new businesses. We moved to Park Ridge just last December and this was a great way to really get to know the downtown better. Thanks again and we look forward to the walk this fall!
"The Park Ridge Wine Walk was a HUGE success! The best part was that we actually went into places that we had never been before and can't wait to go into again to shop and eat! What a GREAT day."
"The Chamber has been very supportive of my photography business by giving me a lot of marketing exposure and leads. Through networking at various Chamber events, I've made many contacts which help keep my business growing. I'm glad I'm a member of the Park Ridge Chamber and would recommend every business in Park Ridge join the Chamber!"
One of the most useful benefits of being a Chamber member for me is networking with other small business owners. We have shared ideas on marketing, sales, events, and social media - it sure helps to learn from each other's experiences.
"I always tell people that being a chamber member is like having your own personal Angie's List. When I have a need, I can count on Park Ridge Chamber members to provide excellent service. Here's an example. Dr. Jennifer Hunsader at Lossman Eye Care is my optometrist. She's absolutely wonderful. How did I meet Dr. Hunsader? At a Chamber Women in Business meeting! She was introduced to me by another chamber member who also uses her services! What better referral is there? And this is not the only chamber member who provides great service to me. I have my cars serviced by Nelson Automotive, my insurance through Dave Donovan at Coyne Insurance and Paul Levine at DeCarl, Levine and Friedman, my kitchen was remodeled by Borgic Remodeling....... the list goes on and on. So when you think of the benefits of chamber membership, don’t just think about selling your services, think of all the great service you can receive from your fellow chamber members!"
"I am a new member of the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce and I am very impressed with the organization. Each event that I have attended has been exceptional. I only wish that I had joined years ago!"
