Get Involved!

There are many ways to become involved in Old Town and the Pocatello & Chubbuck community.  Getting your business' name out and becoming involved doesn't have to cost a fortune.  It just takes time and effort.  Here are some ideas to get you started:

 

Get to know your neighbors - walk along the blocks surrounding your business and introduce yourself and your business.  Hand out business cards, brochures, menus, and if you'd like offer an "Old Town Neighbor Special" to get your neighbors in to visit your store.

 

Join the Chamber of Commerce and start networking - the Chamber of Commerce is located in Old Town and they understand the needs of small businesses.  Becoming a member has many advantages including the opportunity to network at monthly events including the General Membership Lunch on the first Friday of each month, Business After Hours on most Thursdays, and there's more.  Give John Azzola, Membership Director, a call at 208-233-1525, and he will stop by and introduce you to all of the benefits of becoming a member of the Greater Pocatello Chamber of Commerce.

 

Become a First Friday Art Walk stop - this monthly event draws hundreds through your door with very little cost.

Join an Old Town Pocatello Committee - there are two committees recruiting new members today.  Our Design Committee (landscaping, building appearance, streetscape, public spaces) and our Promotion Committee (events, marketing, PR, advertising) meets every month.  If you have an interest in either, please email spalagi@oldtownpocatello.com and indicate which committee you'd like to join.  We'll get you added to the email list for that committee and you'll be invited to upcoming meetings. 

 

Come to the Old Town events and meet the community - bring your friends and family, too.  Wear a name tag or a shirt with your comany name on it, and be  sure to have business cards handy.
