Listening to existing businesses in Tweed

The Tweed & Area Chamber of Commerce is implementing a local economic development project this Spring.  Known formally as a Business Retention & Expansion (BR+E) Project, in partnership with the Municipality of Tweed, the project involves assisting businesses in the community to become more competitive which increases the ability of those businesses to be remain and thrive in Tweed. 

A survey will soon be finalized and a group of volunteers, approximately 20, will head out to meet with businesses owners in the downtown core businesses sector, the hospitality sector and the general business and service industry.  Tom Coke presenting
