Pagosa Lodge will host the Feb. 23 meeting of the Pagosa Springs Merchants Association.
This meeting is for all current members, prospective members and anyone who is curious about who we are and what we are doing.
The focus of the meeting will be on issues relating to the proposed Wal-Mart. Just where do our dollars go when we choose Wal-Mart over local businesses? What product lines, carried by Wal-Mart, will hurt existing Pagosa businesses the most?
We will present the answers to the latter question to the Town Council on March 6. Please attend and let us know your concerns.
The third item on the agenda will be a presentation on the training of personnel in the area of customer service. Customer service is one of the best defenses vis-a-vis a big box.
Finally, we will launch a campaign to raise funds for fireworks, an item now in the TTC’s budget.
All business owners and town and county officials are most welcome. Please join us.
