"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!"
"I am a brand new member who joined the PRCC first thing after setting up my new business. Constant Market Analysis is a critical element to my consulting services - at the Chamber I can listen to many perspectives without taking up too much of anyone's time.
As a long time Park Ridge resident I also enjoy seeing my friends and meeting new ones. It's fun and informative to go to the presentations! I look forward to many, many years of membership and hope to have a leadership role in the future."
